The Ned Smith Center is proud to announce the first installment of its 2015 Discovery Lecture Series: Bog Turtles in your Backyard with George C. Gress.

Bog turtles are the smallest turtle in Pennsylvania, and are federally listed as threatened. These secretive turtles are rarely seen outside of their wetland habitats, which are becoming smaller and more fragmented. Learn about the turtles and the conservation efforts that are in progress to protect these tiny creatures with George Gress, who works as a Fire Specialist and Land Steward for The Nature Conservancy, and manages the Conservancy’s bog turtle projects.

This event is part of the Discovery Lecture Series, a series of evening programs designed to educate the public about the natural world and inspire active participation in it.

Admission to the program is $5 per person. Ned Smith Center members can use their membership coupons to receive ½ price admission to the program. Advance tickets are available for purchase in the Center’s gift shop, by phone at 717-692-3699 or on the Center’s website, www.nedsmithcenter.org.
