Turtle crossings again

She was laying her eggs on the side of the road under our mailbox!

This is a re-post from last year, but it’s worth putting up again. Michael spotted this turtle today on Lake of the Falls Road.

With the breeding season in full swing for our local turtles, the Wisconsin Turtle Conservation Program is asking for our help. If you observe a turtle crossing a road on her way to a nesting site, find any that have been hit by cars, or just spot a turtle in the wild, you can go to the WTCP’s website to report your sighting. These reports help conservation biologists find problem areas so they can work with road agencies to make crossings safer for motorists and turtles alike; and also help build a database to enable the WDNR to manage and conserve turtles. The website is full of interesting info about turtle species, protecting their nests, and helping them get across the roads safely when we find them.

Save the date! Our annual picnic is Sunday, July 29.

As usual, we will have our Annual Membership Meeting at 11:00 followed by the picnic at noon. Thanks as always to Tom and Nikki at Beaver’s for letting us use their beautiful grounds! We’ll have more details as we get closer to the date.

The minutes from the May Board meeting are available here.

If you haven’t stepped into the Pines this year be ready to be surprised. The ice cream area is now the bar and bar area is now the ice cream shop, so the entrances have changed . It looks as they brought in Joanna Gaines to design the space.

Looks Fantastic!!
