Loggerhead Marinelife Center’s SEA-sonal Celebration event to offer holiday activities, ocean wishes

festive-fletchLoggerhead Marinelife Center will host its annual SEA-sonal Celebration event this Saturday, Dec. 17 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. complete with ocean-friendly activities, “wishes for the ocean,” free programming, holiday music and more.

At the event, guests can create environmentally-friendly holiday ornaments at the Responsible Decorator Station and will leave with one Responsible Decorator Kit*. The kit contains all materials needed to create one ornament with 100 percent post-consumer recycled material and a personalized instruction kit with tips on how to reduce waste during the holidays.

Guests can also join in our “Wish for the Ocean,” by writing a special holiday message for our wish garland for LMC’s sea turtle patients or by taking an ornament from LMC’s Giving Tree, which names wish-list items that help the center continue its mission of ocean and sea turtle conservation.

Kids will also enjoy an appearance from the lovable Festive Fletch, creating memories with a fun photo booth and have the opportunity to share their holiday wish for a cleaner and healthier ocean.

Additionally, LMC will offer select programs for free during the SEA-sonal Celebration, including free Turtle Yard Tours every hour, Dr. Logger shows, Junior Vet Labs and Birthday Party Open House activities. These programs are limited in space and fill on a first-come, first-serve basis.
