2011 Titusville Sea Turtle Festival

Thursday, June 23, 2011

Florida is a treasure of history, space technology, sparkling coastlines, earth and nature gems and so much more!  A seeping secret are the sea turtles that habitate along our coastline. This is where I grew up in Titusville, Florida and the pristine Playalinda Beach, virgin coastline to any development, thanks to having NASA across the way. Now my hometown and beach is a popular destination for eco-adventurers!

The 2011 Sea Turtle Festival is a three-day family-friendly event that will center around one of the Space Coast 's most valued creatures - sea turtles. The event kicks off with an artist welcome and culminates June 25 with a festival from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Guests of all ages can enjoy an old-fashioned family fish fry and beachside activities. Children turn into eco-experts while a Ranger from the Canaveral National Seashore leads them into hands on activities about the sea turtles and the environment. This is called Turtle Hunt with a Ranger.

 The event will be held at various venues including hotels throughout Historic Downtown Titusville, the lagoon, and the Playa Linda Beach. To learn more visit http://www.titusvilleseaturtlefestival.com/.

You can't miss the famous Turtle Watch while you're in town. This is a popular year-round event where a group, limited to maximum 40 people, is lead by Park Ranger to watch and observe the famous sea turtles. Playa Linda beach is home to many especially after the Gulf spill. Scores of sea turtles nests were rescued and relocated to this east coast hideaway. Reservations are required. Please call Laura Henning at 321-229-3766.
