Sunrise Nest Excavation
August 25, 2019 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 am
An event every week that begins at 7:00 am on Sunday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until September 8, 2019
The Sunrise Nest Excavation program is a unique opportunity for Loggerhead Marinelife Center (LMC) educators to give the public insight into LMC’s research department. With permission from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, a permitted staff member will lead guests down onto Juno or Tequesta beaches to discuss the nesting and hatching processes of sea turtles. After an introduction to these processes, guests may have the opportunity to witness a live excavation and create their own data sheets to take home as a memento
Sunrise Nest Excavations are $18 per person or $16 per person for our LMC members. All individuals, including children, are required to pre-register online to reserve their spot. Children must be 8 years or older to attend the excavations and all participants must be able to walk up to half a mile.
