      Urban Turtle Festival - Brew and BBQ

      Join us for the second annual Urban Turtle Festival on Saturday, June 8 as we kick off the weekend with a 21 and over Urban Turtle “Brew and BBQ” at the Eagle Marsh Barn from 5:00 – 8:00pm. Mad Anthony's Brewery will be unveiling a new brew crafted on behalf of Eagle Marsh and our turtles. The evening will provide delicious Shigs In Pit BBQ, short hikes, and a raffle. This festival is the highlight to a project that LRWP launched in 2018 focusing on sustainable urban turtle conservation efforts including habitat restoration and education. LRWP staff and volunteers are gaining a better understanding of the turtle populations at Eagle Marsh in order to provide the best management practices and educational opportunities to maximize turtle sustainability. Research opportunities in 2018 included turtle trapping, looking for nesting turtles, and gather information regarding the number of turtles that meet their demise on Engle Road. Ongoing research will continue in 2019 with valuable information provided to LRWP so that we may continue to employ the best management practices at Eagle Marsh.
