Instructor: Bryan Windmiller

Join Dr. Windmiller as he monitors and examines some of the turtles of Great Meadows as well as other reptiles, amphibians, insects, and plants within the refuge. We will radio track a juvenile Blanding's turtle that was raised in a local school for its first year as part of an effort to reverse a sharp decline in this important rare species population. Dr. Windmiller will also discuss and demonstrate some of the complex issues involved in conserving turtle populations in an urbanizing landscape.
Open to adults and anyone age 16-17 with an adult. Directions will be sent to registrants.
