This Saturday, pack up the kids and head over to the Georgia Sea Turtle Center on Jekyll Island for a fun and educational program. The weekly ‘Science Saturday’ offers a variety of turtle-themed topics.
This day’s theme is ‘Marsh-Madness’, with the topic: Science of the Marsh Habitat. This weekly program is open to kids of all ages, and runs from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.
According to the center’s website, the purpose of these classes is to: allow families to learn together while exploring the center. Each event will cover a predefined sea turtle or general turtle-related topic.
The class is included with a general admission ticket. For those that homeschool, this would be a good addition to the weekly course schedule. To sign up for the center’s homeschool newsletter, click here.
