Turtle time is officially here, and our native turtles as well as all of our herpetofauna (reptiles and amphibians) could use your help with road crossings and navigating other obstacles. Chippewa Nature Center Interpretive Naturalist, Lindsey Harrell, explains when to help vs. when to watch from afar and demonstrates how best to lend a helping hand.
If you're close enough to visit our store and have seen turtles nesting on your property, consider registering for our Monday June 5, 2023 workshop where we will build protective turtle nest cages to deter predators: nature-niche.com/collections/classes/products/registration-fee-for-protecting-turtle-nests-at-home-workshop-2023
Here are some other helpful resources to educate your family, friends, and neighbors about the rare turtle species in Midland, MI that we can keep a special protective eye out for and some additional guidance about turtle nest cages for my non-local audience members:
