NO meeting: 15 May

Next scheduled meeting: 19 June

We have two topics in the works for the next 2 scheduled meetings! Depending upon our speaker’s availability, we will be having John Wong of the Long Beach CARE Chapter give us an interesting and humorous interactive program, “Name That Turtle!”

In keeping with the current state of affairs, we will be doing this on-line via Zoom again. You will be receiving an email invitation a few days in advance of the presentation. If you need any assistance with utilizing this program, please give one of the board members a call or email. We’ll help you get rolling.

Backyard Tortoise Habitats — 17 July
We are planning on having a presentation on sharing and creating various backyard habitats. We’ll cover housing, layouts, and fencing ideas to help you modify your backyard into a habitat that will put a smile on your tortoise, or turtle for that matter! We’ll show and cover the various types of housing many of our members, both far and wide, have created. The program also features two case studies to illustrate the steps that you can take in creating or improving your backyard habitat.

Annual ShowOnly Time Will Tell

Depending upon how well LA County fares in lessening the impact of COVID-19, we are still planning for our Annual Turtle & Tortoise Show on Saturday, September 19th. Show set-up will be on the Friday evening of the 18th. We have heard from some of our other exhibitors that they are looking forward to the event. If we all do our part to stay healthy, we will be having our show in four months! At least we’ll be able to practice physical distancing with the ample size of the church yard. Looking forward to it!
