Friday Fun: It’s Still Turtle Time

The launch of A Place for Turtles is so momentous that it deserves more than just one post.

While I was working on the book, my brother in law, energy and environmental writer Peter Fairley, visited and we all took a trek to one of my favorite turtle-y places—the Oxbow Wildlife Refuge in Harvard, MA.

It was a beautiful, sunny spring day, and we saw hundreds, maybe even thousands, of turtles sunning themselves on logs and rocks (not to mention a very cool beaver dam).

Here are photos of two turtles we encountered on the trail—a snapping turtle (top) and painted turtle (bottom).

  1. thanks for the virtual field trip! Hard to imagine that in a few short weeks this snow and ice will be gone and maple season will have morphed into turtle season.
