Hats off to the vendors at The Manteo Farmers Market for inviting us as a local nonprofit to share a portion of our educational program about the many endangered species of Sea Turtles who frequent our shores. N.E.S.T. is committed to the protection of these majestic creatures as they crawl up on the beaches to lay their nests, or are in need of medical help. The opportunity to share the obstacles they face, mostly manmade, with local residents and guests is greatly appreciated.
The Manteo Farmers Market will be open every Saturday from 8AM – Noon through October 2nd. A highly recommended stop during your busy fall weekend! Drop by and check out their wares.We also appreciated being able to offer our N.E.S.T.tee shirts for sale with the proceeds providing funds for the Rehabilitation Center located adjacent to NC Aquarium at R.I. N.E.S.T. volunteers assist with the care for the sick and injured sea turtles that float this way.
