The Wellington Garden Club will meet Monday, Nov. 3 in the Greenview Room at the Wellington Community Center, with a business meeting at 10:30 a.m., followed by lunch at 11:30 a.m. and a program at 12:15 p.m. on sea turtles in the Lake Worth Lagoon, presented by Jonathan Gorham of Inwater Research Group.
For the last eight years, a group of turtles in the lagoon has been the focus of an ongoing research project. These turtles, which live year round in the shallow waters of the lagoon, feed and grow in dense populations. Genetic testing has found that some of these small turtles have come to the lagoon from as far away as Ascension Island in the South Atlantic, more than 6,000 miles away.
Guests are welcome. There is no admission fee, but seating is limited. To reserve a seat, call Carol Coleman at (561) 792-2290. For more information, visit www.wellingtongardenclub.org.
