Lancaster County 4-H Turtle Club


The recently formed 4-H Turtle Club has been a great success. The club, led by volunteer Ashley Hinson, has learned much about turtles and their habitat and spent three days during the summer assisting the Friends of Hunting Island with their Loggerhead Turtle efforts. For more information or to learn how to join, contact Ashley Hinson at 

  • Learn proper health, nutritional needs, and care of turtles.

  • Field Trips to area locations to study turtles in their natural environment.

  • Potential "Fun Day" that would involve various activities and maybe even turtle races!!!

  • The possibilities are endless and ultimately the 4-H youth decide what directions are taken.

  • Club meeting locations rotate monthly. Contact Ashley for more details.
