Summer Time Moonlight Sea Turtle Walks
Do you love the outdoors and walks on the ocean? Then an exciting evening of sea turtle wonder is calling your name at The Museum of Discovery and Science. Recurring weekly on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday until July 17th from 9PM – 1AM, you can learn about sea turtle nesting. While it is weather permitting, following a presentation at the Museum, guests will meet at the beach where guides will proceed to look for nesting sea turtles. A nesting event cannot be guaranteed each time, but when it does happen, no one will forget the experience.
Attendees should be prepared to walk one to two miles during this event, provide their own transportation and pack snacks for the evening. Prices are $19 for members and $21 for non-members.
