Monday, August 15, 2016
Somehow it's the last week of Summer vacation so you have to make the most of it!  There's lots to do and you can also find some FREE ideas for things to do before Summer ends here. Make sure to follow the Facebook page because we are always posting events as they come up.

The last public last public release of Kemp’s ridley sea turtle hatchlings at Padre Island National Seashore this year will be sometime between about August 16 and 19. The specific release date will depend on the pace of hatching and when the hatchlings become ready for release. If the turtles are predicable in their hatching and the hatchlings are ready for release on one of these mornings, the release will be open to the public and held starting at 6:45 am. As those dates near, check back on their Facebook page or call the Hatchling Hotline at 361-949-7163 for the latest information on the release.
