Marion Natural History Museum After School

At the Marion Natural History Museum, an after school program focuses on sea turtles. It will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 25, 2009. Kids will learn about four species of sea turtles are found around Cape Cod and southeastern Massachusetts in the summer. Learn about these endangered species, from the young Kemp’s Ridley, the size of a dinner plate, to the giant leatherbacks, which can be 8-feet-long and weigh more than 1,000 pounds.

The program is led by Karen Dourdeville, who conducts a sea turtle program with Mass. Audubon’s Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary.

Cost for the program is $6 for nonmembers, $4 for members.

Send registrations with payment to Marion Natural History Museum, P.O. Box 644, Marion, MA 02738 to reserve a spot. All programs will meet at the Marion Natural History Museum, 8 Spring Street, Marion. Register with the Museum directly, not the school or library. For information
