At this time of year female turtles make perilous journeys, often across great distances, from their homes in ponds and woodlands to their annual breeding grounds. What can we do to help? This Saturday, at the South Shore Natural Science Center, experts will be on hand to discuss just that. What can we do for turtles crossing back yards and busy roadways? What other problems do these slow-moving creatures face? After observing turtles in the Center's own EcoZone Museum, participants will walk to Jacobs Pond to visit with the turtles who live there. Saturday, June 9, 10:30 - 11:30. Free with admission ($3 ages 2-15; $7 adult; $5 ages 60+; under 2 and members free.) Pre-registration required. Please dress for the weather. www.ssnsc.org
