Since the 1970s the Alabama gulf coast has been host to some temporary guests for a few months of every year. Not spring breakers or snowbirds.... SEA TURTLES!!! For years, our local turtle watchers have been the vanguards of our amphibian friends as they nest here. Join us on January 17th at 6 pm at the Orange Beach Public Library as we kick off our 2013 programming season with a master Turtle Watcher and learn what it takes to make our home a sea turtle's home. This event is free and open to the public. Questions? Contact the Orange Beach Public Library at 251 981-2923.
