Another turtle nest has hatched on Longboat Key, and the public is invited to watch as Longboat Key Turtle Watch volunteers excavate the nest.

The event will take place at 8 p.m., Wednesday, July 28, at 6341 Gulf of Mexico Drive. Parking is available in the ResortQuest and Longboat Key Financial Group parking lot at 6350 Gulf of Mexico Drive. Cross Gulf of Mexico Drive and take Gulfside Road to the beach. The nest is located a few houses south of the beach access.

The excavation will take place rain or shine and will be canceled only in the event of lightning.
