Turtle Release this Saturday

The Forest Ecology Preserve is releasing turtles on Saturday:

Our turtle habitat is getting crowded!  As the weather has warmed up and turtles have been on the move we see more turtles on the roadway.  We've had several folks bring us turtles rescued from the busy streets of Auburn to come live a more peaceful life at the preserve.  Come out Saturday morning @ 9:00am as we release two of these turtles back into the forest at the Ecology Preserve.  Auburn Graduate and Preserve Volunteer Daisy Griffin will give a short presentation about box turtles followed by an optional hike.  During the presentation there will be live turtles to view and touch.  Meet at the Pavilion.  Free Admission.

Also, remember our turtle habitat and its permanent residents are accessible to view 7 days a week.  For pictures and more information check out
