Nesting Beach Walks
A veteran Longboat Key Turtle Walk volunteer, Connie Schindewolf, conducts
turtle nesting beach walks on Saturdays, Starting June18th and ending July 30th.
Connie meets interested vacationers at the Public Beach Access at 4795 Gulf
of Mexico Drive on Longboat Key, at 6:45 am. After a brief discussion about
the walk, the group proceeds to the beach. During the walk, Connie discusses
Turtle nesting, Beach Birds and other aquatic Gulf animals. On a lucky
morning, the group may find a new turtle nest, laid the night before,
and the turtle watch group will demonstrate their skills finding the eggs,
performing measurements, filling out forms and staking the nest.
