Snap up the chance to go on the annual June Turtle Walk in the Southeastern Massachusetts Bioreserve with Green Futures. In our neck of the woods, late May and early June finds most local female turtles out and about searching for a sunny sandbank, road edge, or even a suburban backyard where they can dig a hole and lay their eggs.

Meet at Mill Brook Wildlife Management Area on Howland Road. Small dirt parking lot is on the south side of Howland Road, adjacent to the large cranberry bog you can see behind the houses that front the road.

Approximate length of walk 1 to 2 miles. Insect repellent containing DEET a good idea. Rain cancels walk (drizzle okay).

Cost: Free
