Join us for a detailed and humorous discussion of NoCo turtle natural history. New York is native to 11 aquatic turtles and one terrestrial turtle species. We'll discuss each species, how to identify it, where it lives, and what it does throughout the year. We'll look at photos, skeletons, preserved specimen, and live animals.
