Join Orenda Wildlife Land Trust as we kick off the new year with First Day Hikes Cape Cod, for a turtle-riffic walk-and-talk at our Margaret Wyman Turtle Garden Sanctuary!
We will trace the slow-but-steady steps of Diamondback Terrapins from our sanctuary to Barnstable Great Marsh, while we highlight the efforts of local wildlife organizations to protect the well-being of this threatened species.
We will also introduce participants to the UN Sustainable Development Goals, with a focus on goals #13 – Climate Action, #14 – Life Below Water and #15 – Life on Land.
We are offering two sessions of this free family-friendly event:
We will meet at the far end of Meadow Lane in West Barnstable—please carpool if possible, and drive slowly out of respect for our neighbors and the wildlife! Orenda staff will be on site to direct you to parking.
Capacity/parking is limited and registration is first-come, first-served. The event is free and family-friendly, and the walk-and-talk is rated “easy,” and can be modified to meet the needs of varying ages and physical abilities.
Dress for the weather and wear boots, as we will venture out to explore the marsh at low tide.
