SEA offers a variety of free or low-cost activities to explore and better understand our island’s environment. Residents and visitors are welcome! SEA strives to provide knowledgeable guides for such activities as shore walks or hikes to better understand our native flora and fauna; visits to the endangered bird rehabilitation program; organic farm visits; star-gazing; and snorkeling trips, to name just a few. If you would like to know more about SEA activities, volunteer as a guide or make suggestions, just email or call SEA at 340-773-1989.
This event is full – all of the remaining turtle watches are full for this season. Check back in April when we announce our dates for the 2018 season.
This is an opportunity to see hatchling sea turtles emerge from their nest and head out to the ocean. A guide will give you information about sea turtles and the important research and conservation that is being conducted at Sandy Point National Wildlife Refuge. Hatchling watches begin at 5:15 p.m. and usually run until 7:00 or 8:00. This is a great activity for children and the whole family! You must be a SEA member to attend watches with SEA. Reservations are required. Please call (340) 773-1989 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for reservations and membership information.
