SOFO: Meet SOFO's Diamondback Terrapins: Children Ages 6+

Saturday, December 28, 2019

10:30 am - Program Leader: Paul King III, South Fork Natural History Museum (SOFO) Environmental Educator

Come and learn about the only turtle in North America that spends its
life in brackish water! Long Island is home to many brackish
environments, including the Peconic Estuary where diamondback terrapins
have hardly been studied. Learn about their special adaptations, natural
habitats here on Long Island, their many predators, and what you can do
to help reduce the many threats they face from humans. Join Paul to meet
SOFO’s resident terrapins, and learn about how we house, feed and keep
this unique and elusive species.
