Beach Ambassadors Needed for Sea Turtle Protection

Spread the love

The Friends of South Walton Sea Turtles’ Volunteer Beach Ambassadors hit the beach again starting March 6, 2017.

Having enjoyed a successful test run of their new Volunteer Beach Ambassador program in October 2016, they will be back at it this year between March 6 and October 31 at various Regional Beach Accesses, around town and, of course, on the beach.

“Anyone who wants to be a part of a positive force welcoming those visiting our beaches, has a willingness to answer questions and a desire to help educate people to leave the beach better than the way they found it, can be a Volunteer Beach Ambassador,” said Laurie Reichenbach, Committee Chairperson of the program.

If you are interested in being a Volunteer Beach Ambassador there is a mandatory training for the 2017 season that you will need to attend in order to receive your shirt. This training is initially being offered on March 1 from 6:30 – 9 p.m. and March 4 from 9:30 a.m. – 12 p.m. at the Walton County TDC Visitor Center.
