Lecture Series: Eastern Box Turtles: Conserving NH Rarest Turtle and other At-Risk Species

Squam Lakes Natural Science Center hosts a lecture program for adults about New Hampshire’s rarest turtle – the Eastern Box Turtle. New Hampshire Fish & Game’s Josh Megyesy will discuss monitoring and conservation efforts for state endangered eastern box turtles (Terrapenecarolina carolina). The presentation will cover habitats, biology/ecology, and threats to the species. Josh will also talk about other ongoing work for at-risk turtle species, such as Blanding’s, wood, and spotted turtles, and how landowners can help protect NH’s turtles. This is an in-person program held in our covered, outdoor classroom. Dress for the weather and bring bug spray.

Cost: No charge to attend. Advance registration is required.
