It's Sea Turtle Time 
Sea TurtleIf you have ever been lucky enough to witness a sea turtle nest hatching, then you know it is a memory that lasts a lifetime. Seeing those tiny turtles make their way to the surface and then instinctually head to the water . . . well, it is truly awesome.

We are in the middle of our sea turtle nesting season and there are lots of ways you can help.
  • Avoid using flashlights or flash photography on the beach at night.
  • Turn off outside patio lights and shield indoor lights from shining onto the beach at night.
  • Do not disturb sea turtle nests or tracks.
  • Do not leave trash on the beach.

Fall for the Beach  
Wolf Bay SunsetWow! What a busy summer it has been! We've enjoyed great concerts and events, and so many families spending time together on the beach. And now that school bells are ringing again, we're getting ready to celebrate fall at the beach.

During the fall months our pace is slower. We pause to savor sunsets. We linger over our favorite meals. We take advantage of cool mornings to cast a line for great fishing and enjoy a round or two of golf. We lace up our walking shoes to explore our natural wonderland.

And we hope you'll join us and find your favorite reasons to fall for the beach!

Q: My family is planning a beach trip next month and we want to volunteer our time. I've heard about Coastal Cleanup. When is it and how can we participate?
A: The Alabama Coastal Cleanup is a wonderful opportunity to help our environment. This is the 26th year when volunteers will spend a Saturday removing trash from area beaches and waterways.

This year's event takes place on September 21 from 8:00 a.m. until noon. Volunteers are asked to come prepared with sunscreen, a hat, gloves, shoes and lots of water to drink. Trash bags are provided.

We've been encouraging our Facebook fans to get involved, and here is some of their
