Nesting Beach Walks            Return

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.
