Turtle nest site project

Friends of the Lincoln Community Forest volunteers and Turtles for Tomorrow had a great work session in May restoring a protected turtle nesting site near the Marengo River.  Wood turtles are threatened in Wisconsin and are the primary reason for building this site.  Sites like this draw female turtles away from roads and provide them with larger sites where greater nesting success is expected. This site is protected by electric fence to exclude predators that feed on turtle eggs.  Friends group members will monitor the site for use by turtles.
