Delaware Seashore State Park will host a “Terrapin Talk” at 2:30 p.m. on July 1 to acquaint visitors with these fascinating reptiles and to explain their lifecycles and habitat needs.

The Diamondback Terrapin lives most of its life in salt marshes and estuaries from New York to Virginia, but females seek nesting sites on dry land during this part of the year. Participants will find out what Delaware State Parks and other agencies are doing to protect these ancient creatures, have an opportunity to see and touch turtle artifacts, and maybe meet a live specimen or find nesting site!

The fee for this program is $3 and pre-registration is not required.
