Turtle Day

April 23, 2024

Elizabeth Lake

Western painted turtle hatchlings are the star of this free, family event.

Turtle Day will return to Elizabeth Lake in Cranbrook on April 23.

At the end of April hatchlings will begin to emerge from their nests and make their way to the lake. See the newly emerged hatchlings and learn about their journey, as well as the efforts of the Rocky Mountain Naturalists to protect this Blue-listed, vulnerable species at Turtle Day.

Turtle Day is hosted by the Fish & Wildlife Compensation Program (FWCP) together with the Rocky Mountain Naturalists.

The free, family event runs during the afternoon on April 23 beside the Elizabeth Lake Visitors Centre. Parking is provided behind Elizabeth Lake Lodge.
