Even Turtles Encounter Hurdles!!

Turtle Monitoring

Saturday, May 23rd at 10:00 a.m.

During the spring and summer, Westmoreland conducts turtle monitoring as part of our conservation efforts allowing us to access the health and wellbeing of our turtle population. Everyone has seen turtles crossing the road during the spring and early summer, or perhaps you have had a nesting turtle in your yard. This programs will give participants a glance at the lives of our local turtles, turtle identification, creating a backyard habitat suitable for turtles, and learning what to do should you come across a turtle crossing the road.
