Thanks to a neighbour, Reta Preece, who used our report-a-sighting online form, we know a Blanding’s turtle was laying eggs at the marsh.

As well, a snapping turtle was observed on June 11 attempting to lay eggs in the parking lot.

The report-a-sightings form is easy to use and we love to get your submissions!
