  • The day will also include local environmental education speakers and displays; learn about finding sharks teeth on the local islands, identifying sea-beans, what to do with stranded sea life, eliminating marine plastic debris, the benefits of aquaculture, and more.
  • You may also try your luck and “Guess the Sea Glass in a Jar”
  • Enter the art raffle to benefit the Sea Turtle Conservancy.
  • Be sure to peruse local beach crafters’ wares, and let the kids explore their own craft table. All “ocean gems” are combed not harvested.
  • Come enjoy the day by the sea celebrating its many treasures!
