“Blanding” the turtle is in search of a new, safe wetland habitat. The little pond where she has lived for forty years is no longer safe! A road has been built between her pond and the sandy hill where she goes every spring to lay her eggs. Blanding knows what happens when a turtle tries to cross a road! When she meets young Castor the Beaver, who is eager to build a dam and create a new pond, she sees that her problems might be solved! We also meet her friend the Blue Spotted Salamander as well as a little boy named Edward and his nature-loving babysitter Rachel, who teaches him how to look closely at nature for signs of animals and their activities.
Members: $5 pp, maximum $15 per family; Non-Members, $10pp, maximum: $20 per family. Limited to 30 people (children age 3 and up, with parent)
