University of Maine graduate student Kris Hoffmann brings us a fun and fascinating night of turtle biology. How long can a box turtle live? Why do snapping turtles snap? Why are turtle populations declining, and what can the public do to help? Kris will explain the ecology of these water loving animals and introduce us to all the turtles of Maine. She will discuss their natural history, behavior, unique values, and conservation. This is a presentation sure to be both instructive and entertaining. Come early for social time and refreshments.
