We think this is a northern slider based on the yellow stripe on its neck. We are used to seeing turtles lay eggs in June, but we were surprised to see a baby turtle in early May. Has anyone else found freshly hatched turtles this early in the spring? We would love to hear any thoughts or information that you can share.
After 225 days, this unique Wilderness continues reveal new treasures every day. The Boundary Waters is threatened by copper mines in a sulfide-ore body that are being proposed along the southern border of our nation’s most popular Wilderness. We must work together to protect this national treasure. Together we can @savetheBWCA, but we all must take action.
