What should you do when you see a turtle in the road?

PUBLISHED: | UPDATED:

GROTON — As spring weather draws out egg-laying turtles, local conservation groups are looking to improve community awareness of the four-legged amphibians with a free presentation next month.

On April 7, the Nashua River Watershed Association and Groton Turtle Conservation will host “Turtles 911: Turtle Conservation and Rescue,” 7-8:30 p.m. at the NRWA River Resource Center, 592 Main St. in Groton.

Jenn Jones, a stewardship specialist with the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife, will present a slideshow about seven different turtle species in the area.

Walk-ins are welcome, though pre-registration is encouraged. Those interested in pre-registering can contact Stacey Chilcoat at 978- 448-0299 or StaceyC@NashuaRiverWatershed.org.
