Turtle First Aid Class
Saturday March 3, 2018
10am- 5pm
Adults and teens ages 15 and up. 
Bring your own snacks and lunch.

Interested in helping out local turtles? Do you need continuing education credits or want to know more about our local turtles?  Long Branch Nature Center has long been a rehabilitation facility for reptiles and amphibians. Join rehabilitators and veterinarians in this 6 hour session to learn the basics of how we take care of our rescued turtles.

The morning session is a great introductory class covering natural history, diet, housing, common illnesses and injuries, and how to help wild turtles.  The afternoon session will be on Turtle First Aid.  In this session, veterinarians Dr. Romo and Dr. Hammer will  teach participants how to recognize and handle a variety of issues concerning sick and injured turtles. We'll also perform hands-on diagnostics with live turtles. This is a great class for those looking to be a turtle volunteer, caregiver or apprentice.

For information: 
Meet at Long Branch Nature Center, 625 S. Carlin Springs Road, Arlington, VA 22204.
