Turtle Time 2022

A live turtle educational event — June 12th

Co-hosted by theTurtleRoom and the Wilton Land Conservation Trust

Turtles and Tortoises are one of the two most endangered groups of vertebrates on the planet.

Come, learn about the secret lives of these rare and endangered species, and learn how you can become a turtle hero.

Back by popular demand, The Wilton Land Conservation Trust and theTurtleRoom have come together to offer another educational opportunity for kids, adults, and families to experience and learn more about turtles and tortoises. At this 90 minute event, participants will have the chance to see rare Turtles and Tortoises and learn more about their conservation and survival. As partners, we are elevating minds within beautiful landscapes.

TheTurtleRoom works to learn more about turtles and tortoises, both in the wild and in captivity, through research and observation; teaches others about the importance of turtles and tortoises and their unique characteristics; and implements conservation action in the wild and through captive assurance colonies.

Kevin Minto lives in the Northeast with his wife, two daughters, and their bale of turtles and tortoises. He is the Video Production Coordinator for TheTurtleRoom. Kevin has a passion for teaching people about turtles and tortoises and looks forward to spreading information about how you can help save these amazing animals and be a Turtle Hero.

Join the WLCT and Kevin Minto on a crisp and clear spring morning to learn all about the secret lives of Turtles and Tortoises.
