Blanding’s Turtle Hatchlings Live with the Will Country Forest Preserve

June 10th, 2020 - 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm

Go to the Will County Forest Preserve Facebook page, and watch this live presentation! Ask a question or leave a comment during the live broadcast to complete the Will County Forest Preserve mission in ReadSquared!

Description from the Will County Forest Preserve Facebook:

“Do you love turtles? Here’s your chance to get up close and personal with the hatchlings we’re raising as part of a regional effort to help this state-endangered species.

We’ll be broadcasting from the tanks where these little guys and girls are working to get bigger and stronger so they can be released into the wild.

We’ll be online with interpretive naturalist Jen Guest, and we’ll learn all about this species and the work that goes into taking care of them.

The stream will kick off at noon on the District’s Facebook page and will last approximately 45 minutes. Have a question? Ask it in the comments and we’ll do our best to answer it in real time. We’ll also be chiming in with all sorts of facts.

So cozy up to your screen for a nice lunchtime diversion. The live stream will be pinned to the top of our Facebook page once it goes live.

Fee: Free!
Age: All ages.”
