Discover Goodwin Forest Youth Series: Turtles
Join Master Naturalist Lynn Kochiss and guest expert Bill Powers as we explore the world of painted turtles. These turtles have long been important to Native American cultures and fascinating to scientists. Bill will help you learn how to identify them, what habitat they prefer, and where you can find them here at Goodwin Forest. He will also explain what they eat and what creatures prey upon them, and some behaviors they have that might surprise you! Weather permitting, we will go to the pond to view painted turtles in the wild. Bring your binoculars if you have them.
All children must be accompanied by an adult for this program.
