Upcoming Events and News
This year, STPS will be participating in Giving Tuesday, a global generosity movement that unleashes the power of radical generosity around the world.
Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past nine years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
Giving Tuesday strives to build a world in which the catalytic power of generosity is at the heart of the society we build together, unlocking dignity, opportunity, and equity around the globe. The annual celebration event will take place on November 28, 2023.
Giving Tuesday’s global network collaborates year-round to inspire generosity around the world, with a common mission to build a world where generosity is part of everyday life.
We will be providing information on how you can participate in Giving Tuesday on our Sea Turtle Preservation Society Facebook page.
Beach cleanups are held the first Saturday after the first Thursday of each month at Coconut Point Park in Melbourne Beach and Cherie Down Park and Beach in Cape Canaveral from 9 am to 11 am. All are welcome to come and help clean up the beach. Community service hours are available. Supplies, like trash bags, gloves and pick up tools, are available. Check the CALENDAR for dates.
Join us for our monthly meetings on the first Thursday of each month. We are meeting in person in 2023, at the Scotty Culp Municipal Complex, located at 565 Cassia Blvd., in Satellite Beach. Parking is in the rear of the building. We will also continue Zoom meetings. Social time begins at 6:30 pm, so you can chat with fellow turtle lovers. The meeting starts promptly at 7:00 pm.
Soon it will be turtle season. STPS has many volunteer opportunities for you to participate in. Meet the current volunteers, permit holders, and program directors. Come learn about volunteering with us!
