  • A first rate museum that educates you all about the lagoon, and the ocean's turtle life.
  • Free, donations encouraged by those who can. Even more fun you can sponsor a turtle or volunteer. In June and July, guided tours are available. Several Important videos about turtles in the theater.
  • The Barrier Island Sanctuary has a treasure trove of information about our coast and the delicate ecosystem that makes up our environment here. The staff is nice and helpful, and I will definitely encourage others to go!
