Westmoreland Sanctuary

This week, all FlexSchool students will visit Westmoreland Sanctuary, whether in person or virtually! Students will get hands-on -- and for a few volunteers, feet-in -- and get some fascinating first hand experience with turtle study methods, including trapping for data collection, monitoring turtle health and identifying turtles by their physical characteristics! Our guide will lead students through an understanding of the important role water plays in sustaining all kinds of life, and discuss the ecological roles of different organisms -- and turtles in particular -- in the pond ecosystem.
