The Uncommon and Highly Secretive Turtles of Southern Vermont

Join The Orianne Society's Northeast Turtle Conservation Coordinator, Kiley Briggs, at the Nature Museum in Grafton on Thursday, October 3rd from 7:00-8:30 PM to learn about three rare and highly secretive species of turtle that folk in Southeastern Vermont share the landscape with.

While Vermont is actually home to 8 species of native turtle, most folk only have the chance to see two of them. From Spotted and Box Turtles, which are limited only to a few places in VT, to Wood Turtles, which are widespread through the state, but uncommon and highly secretive, there is an incredible world of turtle diversity in the state.

Please join us to learn about the lesser-known turtles of Southeastern Vermont and some of the exciting work The Orianne Society is doing to conserve their habitat. After the presentation there will be time for Q&A, as well as a meet-and-greet with two live turtles.

Cost: $7 in advance; $10 at the door
