Lancaster County 4-H Turtle Club


The 4-H Turtle Club has been a great success in its first year. 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. Although turtles are a big part of this group, the club learns much about natural resources and wildlife in general. You do not need to have a turtle to join this club and youth are welcome to join at any time.  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.
