Become a trained Turtle Observer and you will monitor and record behavior of the native Western Pond Turtle on Mt Tamalpais. The required orientation includes observation techniques, a discussion on turtle biology, methods for engaging the public, and a walk to a lake. Volunteers will monitor turtles from February through June on their own schedule. Volunteers can be as young as 8 years old if accompanied by an adult.
All new turtle observers must participate in our Turtle Observer Training on Saturday, February 24th from 9am to 12noon. To participate in the training, RSVP is required as space is limited. Rain will not cancel this event.
