Programs

Ongoing – Team Terrapin! Wildlife Monitoring Program
Contact Emily Dunn, Stewardship Manager for more info: edunn@nflt.org

Team Terrapin volunteers monitor a nesting diamondback terrapin population every day from April through October. Volunteers commit to monitoring one day either every week or every other week. Shifts vary depending on the time of year, but generally last no more than half a day. While monitoring, volunteers look for intact terrapin nests, predated nests, hatched nests, and adult terrapins laying nests.
