A Glimpse of Nature -- Turtle Crossing

June is “Turtles-Crossing-the-Road” month.  Let’s celebrate by driving cautiously on roads near wetlands while being alert to female turtles heading to their upland nesting sites.  Notice which roads seem suitable before you encounter an “object” on the road.  Slow down.  If you see a turtle in the line of traffic, assist the animal to cross (in her chosen direction) only if it is safe and necessary.  Invite some friends to join you in vigilance.
