If your kids love turtles, they won’t want to miss this tour and educational program at the Ontario Turtle Conservation Centre (OTCC). OTCC’s education staff will teach us about the 8 turtle species in Ontario, and the factors that have led to 7 of these 8 species being listed as species at risk, ranging from species of special concern to endangered. Children will get the chance to learn about the natural history and biology of these animals, meet and observe some live adult and hatchling (baby) turtles, and learn about the various programs at the OTCC. Ultimately, participants will have the knowledge to become stewards in their own areas. Together, we can make Ontario a safer place for turtles! This event has been organized for PFN members, but friends are invited to join too. Registration is required. All money collected will go to the Ontario Turtle Conservation Centre.
