Lifelong Adventure: Topsail Island Sea Turtle Adventure

  • 12:30pm Wednesday, August 10, 2022 - 2:00pm Friday, August 12, 2022

Learn about sea turtles and possibly witness the hatching of sea turtles on Topsail Island.  Participants will spend evenings on the beach “nest sitting” — waiting for baby loggerhead sea turtles to leave their sandy nests.  Daytime hours can be spent swimming, beach combing or catching up on sleep.  We will also visit the Topsail Sea Turtle Hospital to learn about their work in caring for sick and injured sea turtles.

Participants are responsible for motel reservations and costs.  Lodging information will be given upon completion of registration.

Please note: You will be required to enter the following information for each registrant before you can complete your registration: emergency contact, physician contact and health information (allergies, conditions, medications relevant to this field experience).
