Arboretum celebrates the state reptile with their annual Box Turtle Day


And they’re off, like a herd of turtles! That’s right, turtles.

The Fifth Annual Box Turtle Day celebrates North Carolina’s state reptile, the eastern box turtle. Participants can see live demonstrations of the “turtle dogs,” watch live reptile demonstrations, make turtle crafts and follow Shelly, the Arboretum’s resident turtle, along the Arboretum’s self-guided TRACK Trail.

It’s all happening Saturday, June 9th, at the North Carolina Arboretum from 10:30 a.m.-1 p.m.
