Sea Turtle Program

February 25 - Sea Turtles - Did you know that four species of sea turtles are found around Cape Cod and southeastern Massachusetts in the summer? Come and learn about these endangered species, from the young Kemp's ridleys, the size of a dinner plate, to the giant leatherbacks which can be eight feet long and weigh more than 1,000 pounds.

Karen Dourdeville conducts a sea turtle program with Massachusetts Audubon's Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary.

The cost for the program is $6 for nonmembers, $4 for members. Please send registration form (available at the museum) with payment to the 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 in Marion. Please register with the museum directly, not the school or library.
