It’s Hatchling Season at Orenda’s Turtle Garden

Hatchling SeasonOur Executive Director walked away from his electronic devices today, put on his work boots, grabbed a shovel and installed some motion activated game cameras, hoping we can catch a glimpse of some Diamondback Terrapin turtle hatchlings emerging from their protective nest enclosures in the coming days and weeks. Working alongside our Director and Board, our volunteer Turtle Team has been very active this summer finding and protecting nests and eggs for this threatened native species at one of our wildlife sanctuaries in west Barnstable. If you go there please steer clear of the cameras (mounted on posts) and marked with a private property sign so as not to disturb the nests or activate the cameras.
