Marvel at the beautiful patterns that cover the protective shell of the local box turtle. Use fabric and leather scraps to design and decorate a stuffed, wearable turtle-shell backpack. Make a turtle egg-shaker and, wearing your shell, gather outside to waltz in an oh-so-slow parade. Sunday is Turtle Day!

Free, and admission to the grounds is free until noon.
