World Turtle Day
Cheekwood Botanical Garden & Museum of Art
Sat, May 23 9:00 am
A key feature of the Bracken Foundation Children’s Garden is the Turtle Pond, designed in partnership with the Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency to be managed as a rehabilitation center and sanctuary for turtles confiscated from the illegal pet trade. Children will delight in observing this large and varied water habitat that provides hiding places and access to land for the turtles to dig, bask in the sun, and forage for plants. Join us for the turtles’ arrival at Cheekwood on May 23rd, World Turtle Day.
