Our first nest of the season was relocated by Turtle Watchers Tammy Bair, Annette DeSercey, and Kennard Watson.  The turtle nested near a storm drain, so the volunteers moved the eggs to a safer spot nearby. Cub Scout Pack 302, St John Catholic School, adopted the nest. All of the hatchlings were disoriented when they emerged on 8/3, but fortunately volunteers were on hand to rescue them.
