Roads & Box Turtles

Saturday, April 21 @ 2 p.m.

Roadways are the single largest man-made structure in the United States, and they have many effects on wildlife. Turtles are greatly impacted because they are slow and often use roadway habitats.

This program will share research findings on how a new roadway in the Nelsonville, Ohio, area affects Eastern Box Turtles.

Guest speaker: Marcel Weigand, Ohio University graduate student in ecology and evolutionary biology, Biological Sciences Department
