“The Fascinating Lives of Wood and Spotted Turtles”. Join The Orianne Society's Director of Conservation, Kiley Briggs, for a presentation about two of Sullivan County's most elusive turtles; the Wood and Spotted Turtle. Although widespread in southeastern New York, their secretive nature means that few people have a chance to see them in the wild. Kiley will give an overview of their ecology, the threats they face, what can be done to protect them, and how, in the face of a warming climate, southeastern New York may play a critical role in the conservation of these charismatic species.
