About this event
Come learn all about Piedmont Wildlife Center and the research that we do with box turtles! During your Turtle Trek, you'll get the chance to learn about radio telemetry, mark and recapture method and data collection. You'll get the chance to try your hand at trying to find a box turtle in the woods by only using a radio signal! At the end of your turtle trek, meet one of our resident box turtles up close. This is an outdoor, off-trail walking adventure so please come prepared to trek through the woods and come prepared for the weather. Potential hazards we may encounter could include: ticks, poison ivy, barbed wire, venomous snakes, spiders and insects. Each family must sign our COVID waiver in order to participate in our in-person programming. Each time slot is limited to 10 scouts and 2 chaperones. PLEASE NOTE: Due to the outdoor and wooded nature of our programs, some parts of the program/tour will be inaccessible to wheelchairs, walking aids and those with additional mobility concerns. Since we are on a City of Durham park, we are limited in the improvements and additions we can implement. If you have any concerns or questions, please call us at 919-489-0900 prior to booking a tour or program.
