Calling kids ages 5-13 to join LEC staff as we discuss the threatened and endangered sea turtle species that nest on Volusia County beaches. Learn about their anatomy and diet, how lighting on the beach can affect their nesting habits, and about their connection to the ancient beach of Lyonia Preserve. Create a take-home sea turtle made from recycled materials to remember this fun, hands-on educational adventure. This free program is sponsored by the Friends of Lyonia Environmental Center.
