They range in age from 7 to 10, but already members of Sarasota Girl Scout Troop 381 are tracking turtles.
On the morning of Aug. 17, 12 Girl Scouts and five adults attended a turtle-nest excavation with Longboat Key Turtle Watch members to learn how turtle watchers patrol. The Scouts are working toward their sea-turtle patch and will learn more about turtles later this year.
