Mote's Turtle Walks aim to educate community

by: Kelsey Grau Community Editor

Interested in learning about sea turtles and the life behind the tracks? Look no further than Mote Marine Laboratory’s free Turtle Walks on Saturdays throughout June and July.

Educational walks begin at 6:45 a.m. at the public beach access point at 4795 Gulf of Mexico Drive. Led by a Mote-trained volunteer, participants will learn how Mote’s Sea Turtle Patrol find nests during season as well as discuss the life of a sea turtle and other local wildlife.

No reservation is required and all ages are welcome.
