Lake Worth Blue Moon Drum Circle

  • Aug 31, 2012 · 8:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

During renovations at Lake Worth Beach and Casino, full moon drumming in Lake Worth continues at Snook Island Natural Area. This reclaimed habitat for manatee and other wildlife, is surrounded by a boardwalk, kayak launch, and open areas.

The well-lit, grassy site at the water’s edge has provided a good setting for a drum circle, growing in size since Boynton began enforcing the State's turtle-nesting laws. To stay on good terms with the City, please respect their rules: no alcohol, no drugs, no fire.

Please also be respectful with photography, as this can be distracting, and even prohibitive, to some dancers.

Directions:

You can unload drums (but not park) using the slip road just over the bridge as you drive west toward the mainland.

Parking, shown in yellow on this map, is about 100 yards to the east along Lake and Lucern Avenues; and along North and South Golfview Road. N. Golfview is one way going south along the golf course and has private parking on one side and metered parking (for Snook Island) on the other. S. Golfview is one way going north along Bryant Park, where there's more free parking.

Turtle nesting season, which lasts from March 1 thru October 31, should be over by the time the Casino Park complex, pictured here, is ready. The building is nearly complete, with inside renovation now underway by tenants such as Mulligan's Beach House Bar & Grill.

A note about turtle nesting:

“Palm Beach County's beaches are some of the most densely nested in the United States. Sea turtles can be found in our waters year round, but in the spring and summer, large numbers of adults congregate off our beaches and along the reefs. While on the beach, sea turtles are timid and vulnerable and can be easily frightened away if disturbed. Although at home in the ocean, sea turtles are tied to the land because females must leave the water to lay their eggs on a sandy beach. Populations continue to decline because of the trade in sea turtle products and the loss of essential habitat. Thousands of sea turtles drown in shrimp trawls every year and others die from pollutants and non-degradable debris in the ocean. Concern for the plight of sea turtles is growing and around the world. Conservationists, governmental agencies, public and private organizations, corporations and individuals are working to protect sea turtles on nesting beaches and at sea.

Avoid going to the beach at night during turtle nesting season. If you must be on the beach at night, limit your walking and do not use flashlights or flash photography. The light may cause the female to abort the nesting process, or other sea turtles nearby may be discouraged from nesting if there are lights on the beach."
