Bob Hay, President of the Turtles For Tomorrow organization, and a retired WDNR herpetologist, will present “Turtles of Northern Wisconsin” on Thursday May 10, 2018, at the Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center. Bob will discuss the habitat types and life history characteristics of the five turtle species that live in northern Wisconsin, and the conservation issues and threats facing these animals. He’ll also discuss actions everyone can take to contribute to protecting turtle populations in their area. Bob will also talk about the Turtles For Tomorrow projects in Northern Wisconsin that address recovery of the state-threatened wood turtle, including the project in the Town of Lincoln.
This presentation is sponsored by the Friends of the North Pikes Creek Wetlands and the Friends of the Lincoln Community Forest.
