Turtles at Tallassee Hike Recap

Thanks to everyone who attended the ORLT hike last weekend at Tallassee Forest Preserve.

A very special thanks goes out to Christine Rodick for leading us in a macroinvertebrate hunt in the stream, and spotting a box turtle next to a log and sharing her knowledge at length about these fascinating creatures. We were lucky enough to find two other box turtles during the hike, and even saw an impressively large black rat snake climbing a vine, as well as a beautiful saddleback moth caterpillar.
