Turtle Patrol Trains New Members

We’re very excited to add 20 new members to the Turtle Patrol for the 2017 season. The new members went through their training on Saturday, April 22nd. The training consisted of a review of the Turtle Patrol Organization, walker responsibilities and recommended backpack contents conducted at the Oyster Catcher Community Center by Beautsie Zahrn and Karen Sewell.

The group then moved to the beach for hands on training on crawl recognition, nest protection methods and maintenance and further review of overall walker responsibilities. This session was conducted by Terry Fansler.

The final pre-season activity is the T-Shirt Pick Up Party at the Oyster Catcher Community Center from 10am until Noon on Saturday, April 29th.  Walkers begin May 7th!
