8TH Annual Sea Turtle Day Festival
Say NO To Sky Glow
Join us at Gumbo Limbo Nature Center for our 8th Annual Sea Turtle Day! This fun-filled family day of environmental education will be packed with exciting things to see and do, including live animal presentations, face painting, tank feedings, children’s theater, guided tours, sea turtle rehabilitation, kids crafts, awesome booths, and let’s not forget, great food! Our theme this year is “Say No to Sky Glow.” Light pollution is harmful to sea turtles, birds, and other animals, and can even affect YOUR health! Together we can make a difference…find out how. Celebrate the dark, come out to our park!

Food, drinks, and ice cream will be for sale from our concessionaires, and dining areas will be available.
