Nest Relocation Simulation

With this simulation program you will learn about our sea turtles, their importance, and what conservation efforts the park is taking to protect these endangered species.  You will even get the chance to dig a mock turtle nest and help relocate it... just like how the sea turtle interns at the park often have to do to help protect the eggs!          AGES 7 – 11.

Meet at the back deck at the Visitor Center.

Space is limited; REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED by contacting the park office: (910) 326-4881.
