Animal rehabilitation staff will explain how they care for injured birds and sea turtles, while vendors will sell food and beverages. Exhibitors from regional conservation organizations will provide information on projects throughout the area. Other activities will include crafts and live music. Attendees can learn about Volusia County’s marine environment and get their hands wet in the center’s touch pool, which features cownose rays and hermit crabs. Depending on turtle health, weather and surf conditions, one or more sea turtles may be released on the beach in Ponce Inlet. Because parking is limited, attendees can park at the 7-Eleven store, 4618 S. Atlantic Ave., Ponce Inlet, and catch a free shuttle to and from the Marine Science Center. The service will be provided from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Free. Call 386-304-5545, or visit www.marinesciencecenter.com.
