News from the Front Porch Newspaper

Dear Front Porch Readers, Lots of news and announcements this week - please note: DI Turtle Team The first Loggerhead sea turtle nest on Daufuskie Island for the 2012 nesting season was laid May 5th. "Lights Out - Dusk To Dawn - May 1 Thru October 31" The commercial shrimp season in state waters officially began May 7th. There is the potential for a faulty or illegal TED (turtle excluder device) that will drown a sea turtle if caught in the net, especially the larger turtles. Please report any Strandings (dead or injured sea turtles ) to Holley Miles 843 540-7328 or Tammy Helmuth 843 247-5941. No unauthorized vehicles are allowed on Beaufort County beaches. Thanks for your support. The Daufuskie Turtle Team ************************************* Interested in selling at Daufuskie's own Farmers' Market? Please contact Marianne McEvoy: The Market will have its grand opening on May 26th (Memorial Day weekend), from 11AM-1PM.
