Ontario’s native turtle species face a variety of conservation challenges, especially in urban areas. While ecologists are doing their best to help, there is still much to learn about this cryptic species, and community scientists are at the forefront of these efforts. 

Join us at this fun, interactive in-person event where we'll discuss the threats to Ontario’s turtles, and the creative strategies conservationists are using to support turtles. We'll go on a spring wetland hike to observe turtles in their natural habitat and learn what you can do as community scientists to help at-risk turtles!

  • Activities and concepts that are friendly for all ages
