Zoo and natural resource agency staff will be releasing 2012's last seven western pond turtles in the Columbia River Gorge on the morning of Wednesday, July 25th. As a generous contributor to the success of this conservation project, you are invited to witness their return to the wild.
The release will be held approximately seventy-five minutes from Portland and will occur rain or shine. If you are interested in attending, please send me an e-mail no later than noon on 7/24 that includes an e-mail address and telephone number where you can be reached and the number of your party. Once I hear from you, I'll respond with additional details and directions to the release site. A limited number of vehicles may be permitted to access the site.
For those who cannot attend, here' a link to last year's turtle release that includes a video.
Thanks again for your support!
Rick Horton, Oregon Zoo Foundation
