Did you know snapping turtles are gentle in the water? They keep the lakes clean for all wildlife and for humans too! Turtles live a very long time, but it takes more than 60 years for one turtle to replace itself in the wild. Turtles were also here before the dinosaurs and have survived five mass extinctions, but they are now facing imminent extinction. Learn about these fascinating animals, their life history and behaviour, how to identify them, what is threatening them and how to help them too!
You will also meet live turtles from the Turtle Guardian Headquarters (part of The Land Between charity). See how to handle a snapping turtle, how to make a nest protector and find out how to become a Turtle Guardian.
These workshops are $10 at the door, with a minimum participation of 20.
