Sea Turtle Open House to Take Place at Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary

WELLFLEET – The Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary is offering up a free chance to learn about sea turtles that inhabit Cape Cod beaches.

Learn about sea turtles and why they strand on the beaches of Cape Cod in the late fall, and get a behind-the-scenes look at rescue efforts this month at the sanctuary’s open house.

This “open house” will feature on-going exhibits including a photo exhibit of our rescue program, touch tables with turtle shells and skulls, a craft table for kids, family-friendly sea turtle games and more. Staff and volunteers will be on hand to answer questions.

In addition to the open house, the sanctuary is holding Sea Turtle Patrol walks from 10:30 a.m. through 2:30 p.m. and a screening of the documentary film Saving Sea Turtles: Preventing Extinction from 3:30 p.m. until 4:30 p.m.

Stop by the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary on Saturday, November 24, anytime between noon and 4:00 p.m.

The open house is free for Mass Audubon members, $5 for non-member adults and $3 for non-member children and non-member seniors.
