This site is a tiny non-profit educational facility in Loggerhead
Park. There are saltwater tanks and exhibits that introduce
visitors to loggerhead, green, and leatherback sea turtles; all of
which nest on Atlantic beaches in Florida. Public turtle walks are
conducted on evenings in June and July (reservations required).
There is a lookout tower that provides a nice view of the Atlantic
Brown pelicans, laughing and ring-billed gulls, terns, and a
variety of shorebirds are seen from the beach. Look for sea turtle
tracks on the beach on summer mornings.
