Wounded Nature - Working Veterans Educational Tent

Try your hand at Turtle Putt.  The idea is to get the turtle egg (golf ball) past all of the coastal debris into the turtle nest (hole).  On this beach (putting lane) you will also see a bunch of hatchlings from another nest try to make their way past all of the debris to reach the ocean.  If in one shot (also known as a hole in one) you can get the egg into the nest, you will win your very own sea turtle (plush toy) to take home with you.
