Turtle Prowl

June 30 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

Look for diamondback terrapins, a threatened species of salt marsh turtle. During June and July we’ll walk along sanctuary trails in search of nesting turtles. In August and September we hope to find or release hatchlings. Wear comfortable walking shoes and be prepared to walk up to 2 miles. For adults and children age 6 and older.

Fee: Members: Adult $10.00, Child $10.00  Nonmembers:  Adult $12.00, Child $12.00
