Next meeting: 19 April — Lynda Pasco on Backyard Water Resources

Lynda Pasco will share with us how to obtain simple water resources for your backyard turtles and tortoises. Whether you are making or modifying your turtle pond, Lynda will show you some simple and local resources to help you out. For those of us who have tortoises, they need water, too! They should have a water source for drinking and soaking for good hydration. She’ll cover some ideas and sources to help us in this area, also.


18 May: Annual Fundraising Show

The Santa Clarita Valley Chapter will be joining us at our annual show to make it bigger and better! We will continue our show preparation and planning at this meeting. We’re working with a Southern California TV station to do a spotlight program for us.
