Summer News & Updates
With the arrival of Memorial Day, summer has unofficially begun. Sure, it means your white shoes can come out, and the mad rush of the end of the school year and graduations are upon us. A s the summer kicks into high gear later this month, many of us will head out on vacation.

All Aboard - Sea Turtle Tour

It is a special part of our role in the community to introduce our donors to the amazing organizations serving Brevard and beyond. This year's educational tour with Sea Turtle Conservancy was no exception. Donors were able to get up close and hands-on with several Green Sea Turtles, loggerheads and stingrays while aboard a pontoon in the Indian River lagoon. 

There is no doubt everyone on board fell in love with these amazing turtles while learning about their habitat and local conservation efforts.
