Terrapins spend most of their lives in the salt marsh. Each summer, females lay their eggs in sandy areas above the high tide line. Eggs hatch in the late summer and early fall and the hatchlings make their way to the upper rim of the marsh, where they mature for several years before entering the larger marsh area.
If you are a returning volunteer, or a new volunteer interested in becoming part of our Turtle Protection Team, please email Lisa Nagel, program coordinator, at email@example.com to arrange to join us for an upcoming volunteer training session:
