+ Lights out starting May 1
’Tis the season: turtle-nesting season, that is.

From May 1 through Oct. 31, it’s lights out for the sea turtles.

To avoid disorienting nesting turtles and their hatchlings, turn off or shield lights visible from the beach, including flash lights and fishing lights. Avoid flash photography, pick up your trash, and remove furniture and cabanas when you leave the beach. For more information, visit Longboat Key Turtle Watch’s website,
