The Turtles Have Crossed
The Georgetown Conservation Commission took down the “Turtle Crossing” signs along Georgetown roads at the end of September. They’ll be back up in the spring before our turtles are laying eggs again. Turtles should now be burrowed into their overwintering marshes. If we’ve missed a sign to take down now, or if you can suggest a turtle road crossing area that needs signs in the spring, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’re also looking into getting official DOT turtle crossing signs for our State roads.
