Nesting Beach Clean Up Day

October 14, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

An event aimed at making Lake Champlain’s beaches more welcoming to spiny softshell turtles is coming up, and Vermont Fish and Wildlife wants your help with it.

Nesting Beach Clean Up Day is Sat., Oct. 14. Volunteers will pull weeds and debris off sites where the turtles lay their eggs.

Fish and Wildlife biologists say these kinds of efforts, along with a push to keep people from disturbing the beaches during nesting season, are making a difference for the threatened species.

If you want to help, you’re asked to meet at North Hero State Park on Saturday at 10 a.m. After finishing there, the group will carpool to another site in Swanton.

The event is rain or shine, and you should plan to dress for the weather and bring water and snacks. Some hand tools will be provided, but participants are encouraged to bring their own garden tools like rakes. Kids are welcome! Pre-registration is not required.

For more information, contact Toni Mikula at Toni.Mikula@vermont.gov.
