Join Turtle Bay Exploration Park and Dutch Bros. Coffee on Thursday, September 19, 2019 for “Caffeinate For a Cause,” an annual fundraiser event benefiting Turtle Bay’s work in cultural and science education, from care and feeding of the animals to subsidizing school field trips to booking blockbuster exhibitions.

Caffeinate For a Cause, now in its 7th year, will be held 7-9am and 2-4pm at all Redding, Anderson, and Palo Cedro Dutch Bros. Coffee locations. $1 dollar from every drink sold as well as all designated tips benefit Turtle Bay.
