Turtle Nesting Season !

Posted: June 7, 2022
DRIVE WITH CAUTION: It’s turtle nesting season and many of the turtle species found in our parks are on the move. Please keep an eye out for them. This photo was shot last week in north Cattus Island County Park. There were 3 turtles on the road within 100 yards. Be Careful.
If you find one in harm’s way in the road and you move it to safety, move them in the direction they were heading or they’ll move back on the road to continue to their destination.
USE EXTRA CAUTION, if you are near a snapping turtle (pictured here) as they can extend their necks, with “snapping” jaws over half their body length.
