Turtle nesting area cleanup @ Mount Union, PA
May 7 @ 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Volunteer Opportunity:
Professor Roy Nagle of Juniata College and Juniata County Coordinator Stacia-Fe Gillen will be spearheading a cleanup in the Mount Union area to benefit northern map turtles. The Mount Union site is the largest riverine turtle nesting area known in Pennsylvania. We will clean up trash along the turtle fence and remove vegetation from the turtle nesting mounds to improve habitat. Of course, any encountered herps will be documented for the PARS project. Juniata College, Keep Huntingdon County Beautiful, and PARS are excited to be partnering on this project!
