Can turtles take off their shells? How does a turtle shell grow? What's the difference between a turtle and a tortoise? Come learn some really cool facts (and myths) about our scaly reptile friends that live in the Blue Hills.
This program begins in the museum's auditorium with a hands-on investigation of turtle artifacts, an up-close visit with our resident turtles, a story, and a turtle craft. We then visit Trailside's pond to watch turtles in their natural habitat.
