Need a kayak? Apalachicola Maritime Museum (653-2500) or Journeys of St. George Island (927-3259) will provide a kayak, paddle and personal flotation device for $20. Plan for a two to three-hour trip depending on your paddling level. Bring sunscreen, water and snack.


Holiday cleanup July 5 on island

On July 5, volunteers will meet in Lighthouse Park at 9 a.m. to clean the streets and beach after the Independence Day. Trash bags, gloves, and water will be provided--also T-shirts and caps for those who still need/want them. Remember to wear closed toed shoes and bring sunscreen and insect repellant.


Sea turtle lectures on Wednesdays

Anyone interested in learning about sea turtle nesting can attend 2 p.m. turtle orientation meetings on Wednesdays during July at the Apalachicola National Estuarine Research (ANERR) Reserve Visitor Center in Eastpoint. The presentations are hosted by the St. George Island Volunteer Turtlers and ANERR. Common sense turtle tips include removing all beach chairs and umbrellas at the end of the day and using red-filtered flashlights when walking on the beach at night to avoid disorienting hatchlings
