Learn About Sea Turtles on Free Nighttime Beach Walks in Destin

By: Lauren Tjaden


When you’re on the beach, you’re sharing it.

I’m not just talking about sharing it with other people either, like the guy in the Speedo or the family building sand castles. You’re sharing it with a host of creatures, including shorebirds that feed in the tidal pools or soar the breeze, crabs that scuttle sideways, and sea turtles that nest in the sand.

No one knows more about these beach creatures than George Grey, Okaloosa County’s Sea Turtle Coordinator for almost two decades. And he’ll share his wealth of knowledge with you on a free guided walk – under the stars.

You and your gang can learn about sea turtles, their nesting habits and other wildlife along the beaches of Okaloosa Island and Destin in Nighttime Educational Beach Walks every Monday and Thursday July 3 through Aug. 28, 2014, at 7:30 p.m. 

This program is free and open to the public (ages 6 and older), but reservations are required. If you want to go, I suggest you snag your space before the next high tide, becasue each walk is limited to 20 people.

For reservations and more information call 850-865-0868 or email ECTurtleWatch@gmail.com.
