TUESDAYS, WEDNESDAYS, OR THURSDAYS 9 p.m. – 1 a.m.
The Museum of Discovery and Science invites families to participate in an exciting evening of sea turtle discovery and wonder! The annual evening Turtle Walks will occur in June and July 2019. Visitors will have the opportunity to learn about sea turtle nesting and nature permitting, observe a loggerhead sea turtle lay her eggs and then head out to sea. At 9:00 p.m., the Turtle Walk adventure begins at the Museum of Discovery and Science with an informative presentation by Museum staff about the plight of sea turtles. Guest will then meet at Fort Lauderdale beach where Museum expert guides will scout the beach looking for nesting sea turtles. Once a turtle is found and has begun the egg-laying process, guests will be led down the beach to witness this unforgettable experience.
Please note: nesting is not dependent upon weather, tides, or moon phases, and we cannot guarantee a nesting event each time. Guests should be prepared to walk approximately one to two miles, and provide their own transportation and snacks. Participants must be 9 years of age or older. White lights and flashes are not permitted on the beach. Advance reservations are required as space is limited. Please call 954.713.0930 to make reservations. Prices are $19 for members and $21 for non-members.
