Turtle Day @ the Museum

Join us for a 40 minute virtual tour and presentation by Ontario Turtle Conservation Centre. This very unique tour will include a walk-through of their turtle hospital, getting to meet a turtle ambassador, the opportunity to learn about 8 species of turtles, and the threats faced by turtles today and what we can do to help them. After the virtual tour kids will have the chance to create small turtle diorama craft with museum staff  (like the one pictured below!).

Time: 11:00am

Cost: Regular Admission Applies ($3/person, ages 12 & under free)

Family Friendly

No pre-registration is required.

Organization Bio:

Ontario Turtle Conservation Centre (home of Kawartha Turtle Trauma Centre) is a registered charity whose goal is to protect and conserve Ontario’s native turtles and the habitat in which they live. We accomplish this by operating a turtle hospital that treats, rehabilitates, and releases injured turtles, by performing extensive research in the field to further conservation initiatives, and by running a comprehensive education and outreach program.

OTCC strives to increase awareness of the challenges facing Ontario’s turtles and to inspire individuals to act- that one person truly can make a difference!
