Turtle Day

Contributed by Stewart Wilson

More than 220 students from TM Roberts, Amy Woodland, Gordon Terrace, St. Mary’s Catholic School, (Kootenay Christian Academy?) and Parkland Middle School participated in Turtle Day at Elizabeth Lake on April 27. They discovered what type of food western painted turtles eat by identifying the various insects and creatures caught in their dipnets; examined the remains of a turtle nest and its contents; and had an opportunity to handle young turtles while learning interesting facts about them.
