DuPage Turtle Release:
Yesterday was World Turtle Day, and the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County got in the spirit by releasing 12 Blanding’s turtles into the wild at a local marsh. The group has been raising the endangered species in captivity for nearly two years as part of “Project Head Start,” an initiative focused on rebuilding the turtle’s numbers in our area. They went off into the wild equipped with radio transmitters and small thermometers so their progress can be monitored.
Boys Volleyball Playoffs:
