Create and maintain nesting ‘gardens' for diamondback terrapins. Diamondback terrapins are a threatened species of turtle found at Wellfleet Bay.

Instructions and Directions:

This is an outdoor project, please dress for the weather. Wear closed shoes suitable for hiking, and bring work gloves, water bottle, and a hat. We will be weeding and pulling grass and other vegetation from the nesting areas. We are not likely to encounter terrapins, as nesting season typically begins in May.
