Loggerheads, Kemp's Ridley, Greens, and Leatherback sea turtles all nest on coastal Georgia's beaches. Join us to learn about the amazing lives of these sea turtles. We'll discuss anatomy, natural adaptations, why sea turtles cry, natal beaches, and Tybee Island's conservation efforts. Afterward we'll head down to the Coastal Gallery to feed our visiting loggerhead sea turtle. Recommended for ages six and above.

Discover the marine life of the intertidal zone through seining. Pull a ten-foot seine net through waist deep water to catch, examine, and release marine life. Commonly caught organisms include pompanos, silversides, mullets, sea jellies, and crabs. After seining, we’ll explore the marine life of the sandy bottom by sifting various organisms from the wet sand on the beach. Recommended for participants nine years and older.

(Class meets off site. Details provided at registration.)
Trek through Georgia’s salt marsh, where you’ll get hands-on exploration in the mud searching for fiddler crabs, snails, and more. Examine salty grasses, observe soaring marsh birds, and hum with periwinkle snails. Learn about adaptations necessary for survival in this environment, how the marsh functions as a nursery for many organisms, a filter for pollutants, and as an abundant food source. **REQUIRED - Please wear closed-toed, closed-heel shoes, such as rain boots or old tennis shoes (no flip flops or Crocs) and expect to get muddy.** The proper shoes are required to participate in the program. You will not be refunded if you do not wear the proper shoes. Not recommended for kids under six years old. Marsh Treks meet off-site, on the north end of the island at Spanish Hammock. Directions are emailed with paid program confirmation.
May 16, 2019, 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM @ Tybee Post Theater
Just in time to herald in Tybee’s Beach Bum Parade, we bring you the ultimate summer season launch, Matthew McConaughey in the role of a life time as, you guessed it, a beach bum!
Moondog is a fun-loving, pot-smoking, beer-drinking writer who lives life on his own terms in Key West, Florida. He's a poet by profession but dedicates all his time medicated. He has a wife that has a lover and a daughter that settled into marrying a man so dull he makes a Mormon seem exciting. If he can put down the drugs for just one minute, he may finally be able to put his talent to good use and finish the next great American novel.
Even NPR loves it, saying, “An American Dream presented as perverted, and decaying, yet splashed in neon and soaked in sunshine, ‘The Beach Bum's’ brilliant embrace of body, pleasure and art feels like Paradise.” Rated R.
