Turtle Observer Training


Turtle Observer Training

Source: One Tam Calendar

Become a trained Turtle Observer and you will monitor and record behavior of the native Western Pond Turtle on Mt Tamalpais. The required orientation includes observation techniques, a discussion on turtle biology, methods for engaging the public, and a walk to a lake. Volunteers will monitor turtles from February through June on their own schedule. Volunteers can be as young as 8 years old if accompanied by an adult. Pre-registration required as space is limited: RSVP by sending email to Rain will not cancel. 

Maximum number of volunteers is 30. Ages 8 and up.
