A few weeks ago during February school vacation break we hosted the Center for Wildlife where they gave a wonderful presentation about wild animals, many of which they have rescued. The presentation included facts about animal habits during winter months and after they start to move and cross roads in the spring.
Special attention was paid to the box turtle and what to do should you encounter one crossing the road. The answer is to safely pick the turtle up and place him on other side of the road, facing the same direction they were heading. Remember safety first for you and the turtle! If you are interested, we also have a need for citizen science volunteers for our Wildlife Roadwatch project.
