Rise early this Saturday to learn about protecting sea turtles with a Mote-trained volunteer. Participants will learn about turtle tracks and how volunteers scout the beaches for signs of turtle nesting. The 1.5-mile walk will also provide information about keeping beaches safe for sea turtles.
Walks begin at 6:45 a.m. Saturdays in June and July. Meet at the Longboat Key Hilton Beachfront Resort pool area, 4711 Gulf of Mexico Drive. The walks are free, and reservations are not required. Children must be accompanied by an adult. For information, call 388-4441 or go to mote.org.
