Blackbrook Audubon Focuses on the Spotted Turtle

January 15 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Event Navigation

Blackbrook Audubon will offer a free presentation on how a dozen park districts and conservation organizations are collaborating to restore the spotted turtle to Northeast Ohio. Listed as a threatened species by the Ohio Division of Wildlife, spotted turtles find fewer wetlands to breed in and endure losses from higher numbers of raccoons and capture as illegal pets. Dr. David Kriska of the Cleveland Museum of Natural History and Dr. Gary Riggs, founder of Wild4Ever, will describe how turtles are monitored and hatchlings are given a head-start before release into suitable habitat. The multi-agency committee is SPOTD for Save and Protect Ohio Turtle Diversity.
The presentation is open to all. For more information, email [email protected] or visit Follow Blackbrook Audubon Society on Facebook.
Programs cancelled due to weather will be announced on the iAlert system on WKYC-TV 3,, Newsradio WTAM 1100, Blackbrook Audubon Society is the local chapter of National Audubon covering Ashtabula, Geauga and Lake counties.
