Sea Turtles Everywhere!
Saturday, May 18, 2019Time 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM
RSVP at: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090c4badac28aaf58-seaturtles3 and join us July 20th at 8:30 am at Stump Pass Beach State Park for BIPS’ Sea Turtles Everywhere Program!
It’s Sea Turtle Nesting Season and the perfect time to learn more fascinating facts about the sea turtles that nest on Florida’s beaches! Come explore sea turtle nests at Stump Pass Beach State Park with an expert FL State Park Ranger who will explain all things sea turtle! Did you know that sea turtles return to the same beach they were born on even 30 years later to nest and lay eggs?! You’ll also learn about how the hatchlings emerge from the nest and journey into the sea, and then return again to nest as adults in the same area years later!
There is no fee for this program, however, it is sponsored by Barrier Island Parks Society (501c3 non-profit) in partnership with Florida Park Service, and all donations are greatly appreciated to further enhance BIPS’ educational programs! There is a $3 vehicle fee to park at Stump Pass Beach State Park.
Thank you for your support and helping BIPS!
