A special guest post from Tryon Turtle

Hey there, last Saturday, Sept. 10, I visited the Davidson Farmer’s Market WOW booth.  WOW-World of Wonder is a program sponsored by Davidson Lands Conservancy and Woodland Discovery connecting families and nature by providing free market booth activities and nature outings. These guys really know how to have fun!  On Saturday, WOW sponsored an outing to go look for spiders, but I preferred to stay at the market to visit some Painted Turtle “cousins.”   The painted turtles live nearby at Harris Lake, and came to the market so that families could get a close up look at them, learn about NC turtles (especially those in the Davidson area) and how to protect them, and to learn about the Davidson College Box Turtle tracking program.  I really enjoyed my visit to Davidson Farmer’s Market and the great WOW people!
