Registration is now open for the latest CCA Skidaway Cast Away event!
“Always be Yourself Unless You Can Be a Turtle” to be featured at the Saturday, Sept 24th Cast Away Club Event.
The Cast Away Club event will be on Saturday, September 24th at the CCA Outdoor Education Center located at the Kid’s Fishing Lagoon adjacent to Log Landing Road and the Oakridge Fire Station. Registration and name tag pick-up is at 8:45.
Skidaway Island Audubon Diamondback Terrapin Rescue program has a huge following here on the Island. The rescue program is led by an enthusiastic group of Audubon Volunteers who monitor the nesting, relocation of eggs and release of the baby turtles here on the island.
We will have live baby turtles for everyone to touch and hold. You will also learn how the mama turtles dig their nests, lay their eggs, and finally cover up the nest to protect their eggs. That is when the rescue program begins.
The nature program is from 9:00 to about 9:30. After the session kids and their parents will have the opportunity to fish together from 9:30 until 11:00. Rods, reels and bait, will be provided by Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) Skidaway.
Volunteers from CCA Skidaway Chapter will also be available to help. Cast Away Club events are always free. Donations of $10.00 for a kids white logoed Cast Away Hat is helpful.
Attendance is limited, so please register as soon as possible, click here to register
