Canaveral National Seashore harbors 24 miles of undeveloped beach, the longest such stretch on the east coast of Florida. Almost 6,000 sea turtle nests were deposited at the Seashore last year. The 40,000-acre Mosquito Lagoon, situated behind the barrier island, serves as an important nursery site for juvenile sea turtles. John Stiner, Resource Management Specialist at
Canaveral National Seashore, will present some of the issues, challenges and rewards of managing this special resource. Join us and learn how you can become involved “up close and personal” in protecting sea turtles at the Seashore.
