Become a trained Turtle Observer and you will learn to monitor and record behavior of the native western pond turtle around Phoenix Lake and Lake Lagunitas. The required orientation includes a hike around Lake Lagunitas, a discussion on turtle biology and methods for engaging the public.
Volunteers will monitor turtles from March through May on their own schedule. Volunteers can be as young as 8 years old if accompanied by an adult.
Pre-registration is required as space is limited.
