The Southeast Regional Sea Turtle Network (SERSTN) values your participation in the 4th Southeast Regional Sea Turtle Meeting and we want to ensure that you receive maximum return for your registration fee.  We have contracted with the Myrtle Beach Marriott Resort & Spa at Grande Dunes in Myrtle Beach, SC, to meet your accommodation needs. By booking at this property, you will be entitled to the discounted registration fee noted below.  Since we are under contract with the Marriott, we must meet the contracted room block.  By booking at this property you will be supporting SERSTN and our ability to continue to provide a top-quality meeting for years to come.  We look forward to seeing you in Myrtle Beach in February!
