Amazing Turtles

Saturday, April 21, 2018

Come discover the uniqueness of turtles and our local species. We’ll view the exhibit and then learn in depth various turtle information. We’ll explore their unique adaptations and life history. We’ll touch on turtles around the world and their importance in different cultures. We’ll look at live turtles and learn about our local species and their status. If weather permits, we’ll even take a hike to look for turtles in our ponds. The turtle exhibit, “Secrets of the Shell,” is provided for Iowa nature centers courtesy of the National Mississippi River Museum and Aquarium in association with the Smithsonian Institute and the Resource Enhancement and Protection Act.
