Junior Explorers: Tailgating with Turtles

Calling all Junior Explorers and families! The Kiawah Conservancy will host a summer Junior Explorers event in partnership with the Town of Kiawah Island Turtle Patrol and Kiawah Island Community Association. 

During this exciting family-friendly event, you will have the opportunity to team up with a Turtle Patrol volunteer for a hands-on turtle nesting and hatching activity followed by a Q&A session. Each participant will receive a Junior Explorers backpack, an official Junior Explorers membership card, and more!

We’ll also be joined by local authors of the children’s book Little Turtle’s Kiawah Island Journey, Deanna Cochran and Patty Wolford. Be sure to bring your copy of the book for them to sign! Copies are sold at all Kiawah Island Golf Courses, Roy Barth Tennis Center, The Nest Market | Cafe, and The Sanctuary gift shop. The authors give a donation to the Conservancy from each book purchased on Kiawah Island. We appreciate their generous donation and look forward to seeing you for an afternoon of turtle fun!

  • Registration is required.
  • Parents/guardians must stay with children throughout the event.

When: Wednesday, July 10 @ 3 pm
Where: The Sandcastle (1 Shipwatch Road). Meet on the beachfront near Boardwalk 8 B.

Don’t forget sunscreen and a refillable water bottle! A water station will be provided. Please contact Katie (katie@kiawahconservancy.org) with any questions.
