There are 16 species of turtles here in Massachusetts. They are wonderful animals. In addition to helping with seed disbursal and pest control, they actually create and modify habitats for other animals, and improve soils through their burrowing and mineral cycling!
We’ll talk about some of the turtle species that live in our area, and introduce you to Chagall, own painted turtle who was rescued here on the farm. We’ll also talk about their life cycles, wild habitats and diets, and about how we can help them to thrive and be happy right in our own backyards. Each participant will build a turtle habitat to bring home and put in the garden. Everything is included in the workshop.
This workshop is intended for families. Priced per child, parents participate for free. This workshop is suitable for children 8 and up.
