Daily Programs

The Marine Environmental Education Center (MEEC) offers daily public programming as well as general admission to the Interpretive Center, animal exhibits, and the historic Carpenter House. We offer the chance to observe a sea turtle feeding, featuring our resident green sea turtle, Captain. During the feeding, you will learn about Captain’s history and injuries as well as general sea turtle biology, ecology, and conservation. Feedings occur daily at 3:30 PM.
