IMG_0002The TSA would like to offer a huge thanks to the volunteers who were able to come out and lend a hand at the Turtle Survival Center on February 9 and 10. Special kudos go out to Jay Allen who served double-duty as a hard working volunteer and as BBQ Master!

The volunteers were able to get a ton of stuff done including removing existing fencing and posts from pastures and hauling away trash and clutter from storage areas. Additionally, trees were removed from areas where tortoise facilities will be built and either burned or hauled into the woods to decompose naturally. Significant progress was also made on scrubbing the existing ponds and getting them ready for turtles. All in all, it was a good time and we appreciate everyone's hard work!
