Turtle Season Begins May 1

May 1 marks the beginning of loggerhead sea turtle nesting season on St. George Island. It is the season when local volunteer turtlers begin walking the beach in order to find, mark and protect turtle nests and when homeowners and visitors are educated about turtle friendly house lighting. Visitors interested in learning about sea turtle nesting can visit the St. George Island Visitor's Center (at the St. George Island Lighthouse Park) to see a turtle display and pick up a free turtle cover for your flaslight. Click here to watch a turtle video.

Presentation about Sea Turtles Begin in June - Franklin County's Oldest Visitors at the firehouse (324.E. Pine Ave.) at 2:00 by Sea Turtles at Risk, Inc. and the SGI Volunteer Turtlers. www.seestgeorgeisland.com for details.
