Bluegrass and sea turtles? That is exactly what some N.E.S.T. volunteers thought when N.E.S.T. was offered a space at the 2018 Bluegrass Festival which was held at Roanoke Island Festival Park in Manteo, NC. After thinking about it a bit the conclusion was that it would be a great way to maybe not pick and grin, but do a lot of grinning when talking sea tur-tel and offer education material to the attendees.
The bluegrass festival was a three day event and Frances H. quickly set up volunteers to supply the needed help. On starting day the booth was filled with education material and N.E.S.T. volunteers were at the ready.
In addition to locals living on the strip of sand called the Outer Banks, the N.E.S.T. booth has visitors from PA, NJ, NY, KY, FL, SC and other parts of NC who showed an interest in one of nature’s finest.
Our thanks to Frances H, Rick J., Rich L., John S, Chris S, Melanie K, Peggy K, Tim B, Bonney B, Pierce J, Kenny L, Elaine L, Simone L, and Carly … Some of the dedicated N.E.S.T. volunteers who make a difference. SALUTE and turtle on!
