On Saturday, August 1, approximately 70 community members and CLC supporters gathered at Ooms Conservation Area to partake in stand-up paddling, kayaking, and old-fashioned games. One of the highlights of the day was biologist Casey Tompkins’ collection of a 55-pound snapping turtle, which he estimated was approximately 65 years old! Casey’s presentation focused on common misunderstandings about the turtles, which are primarily lazy vegetarians as adults.
