Bringing Turtles Out of Their Shells
October 19, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Thursday, October 19 at 7 p.m.
Wildlife rehabilitator Pam Meier will introduce you to some of our most beloved, least understood neighbors: turtles. From the aquatic to the terrestrial, the well-known to the rarely seen, many of these ancient, iconic creatures have quietly disappeared across New England, and seven of Connecticut’s 12 species are already on the endangered list. The shoreline remains a stronghold for several, however, and understanding them is more important than ever to their survival. Come meet some live examples of our native turtles, hear about their natural history and unique characteristics, and learn how to identify them by species and gender, as well as what to do–and not do–if you find one.
