Turtle babies have begun hatching and Nancy from the Friends of Flax Pond will be working with us to release them into the marsh on the creek side of the walking path at West Meadow Beach. We need volunteers to help photograph, weigh, measure, and notch the shells of the hatchlings. Then we’ll send them on their way wishing them a safe journey! We will be meeting at the start of the walking path at the end of Trustees Road.
