A huge thank you to all that showed support in building a new home for our eastern box turtles at the Zion Nature Center. The turtles are currently lodged in a large plywood box that makes it challenging for programming with groups and families. In order to observe the turtles, children must step up on stools, or smaller children need to be lifted to view the turtle habitat.
Through donations, we raised $9,500 for the new exhibit, signage and accompanying educational programming. The new tree stump exhibit is set for completion in May 2017.
