When turtles nest on local beaches, keeping the shores dark is the bright thing to do.

Because nesting season is just two months away, Mote Marine Laboratory will hold the a workshop from 1:30 to 4 p.m., Tuesday, March 15, in the Jean P. Hendry Conference Room in Mote’s Ann and Alfred Goldstein Marine Mammal and Sea Turtle Rehabilitation and Research Center, 1703 Ken Thompson Parkway.

Attendees will hear educational presentations by Mote’s sea turtle researchers and local wildlife officials while learning about new lighting projects approved by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

The workshop is free. Beach residents and property managers are encouraged to attend. Registration is required by March 12.

For information and registration, contact Keri Ferenc Nelson of Sarasota County’s Sea Turtle Protection Program at 232-6788 or kfnelson@scgov.net.
