Attendees can meet glove-trained birds of prey and visit booths staffed by artists, crafters, the Halifax River Audubon Society, Canaveral National Seashore, the Volusia/Flagler Turtle Patrol, and the Volusia Sea Turtle Society.
At a triage tent, children can bandage a stuffed animal and learn how the animal rehabilitation staff takes care of injured birds and sea turtles. Other activities will include face painting, crafts and live music.
Vendors will serve food, beverages and frozen custard.
The day will culminate at 3 p.m. with the likely release of a rehabilitated sea turtle and several pelicans and gulls at the Beach Street ramp in Ponce Inlet. The releases are dependent on animal health and environmental conditions.
Admission to the Marine Science Center will be free on Turtle Day.
