The Journey of the Snapping Turtles
Alligator snapping turtles frequent the four lakes of Glen Echo. Every mid-spring, the females make their journey across the course to lay eggs in the creek along holes 1-2. What a long journey for those short little legs If you drive in from the front gate, you might be on the lookout for turtles as they cross the road looking for a nesting site. They are not afraid of humans and or the vehicles we drive and will literally turn and face the object that is impeding their travel and or come into their field of vision.
