Over 20 students in the Concord-Carlisle High School Environmental Club gathered around Dr. Bryan Windmiller to learn care techniques for their Blanding’s Turtle hatchlings. Students learned to identify individual turtles by the indentations on their shells. The club, which meets every Friday afternoon at 2:20 p.m., feeds the turtles and records their growth. The turtles will be released in the spring at the Great Meadows Wildlife Refuge in Concord. (Photo by Cynthia Sorn)
