Oregon has two native turtles species that are listed as critical for conservation, the western pond turtle and the western painted turtle. This training is for volunteers interested in performing turtle surveys for THPRD or a partner organization.
Participants are trained and assigned to survey ponds within the District where they survey for and identify native and non-native turtle species. Surveys take approximately 1 hour per site and are performed every at least once each week from April 1 - July 31. Dates may vary year-to-year with variations in weather.
Meeting Place: This training will be held at the Tualatin Hills Nature Center, in the Beaver Den. The Tualatin Hills Nature Center is located at 15655 SW Millikan Way, in Beaverton. 97003
