Turtle Walk & Hatchling Release Programs

There has been much discussion surrounding the impact that Covid-19 may have on our Turtle Walk and Hatchling Release programs.  Covid-19 has disrupted nearly every aspect of our lives, and we know you are anxious to know what will happen with these programs.

We are closely following the current recommended CDC guidelines for social distancing, as well as the reopening plan that is being set forth by the City of Boca Raton.  At this time, we have made the decision, with the support of Friends of Gumbo Limbo and the City’s Recreation Services Department, to cancel the Turtle Walk and Hatchling Release programs for 2020.  This decision was made with the health and well-being of our program participants and staff being our highest priority.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.  We hope you are staying healthy and safe.
