“Turtle Guy” to speak at library

WAREHAM – Don Lewis, AKA the “Turtle Guy,” will present “Turtles Gone Wild: turtles of the South Coast and Cape Cod” at the Wareham Free Library beginning at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 14.

Lewis and his “partner in research and life,” Sue Wieber Nourse, will introduce the diamondback terrapin and Kemp’s ridley sea turtle among other rare and endangered shelled critters of local lands and waters. Among their efforts, the couple rescues stranded sea turtles, warms up cold-stunned turtle babies, relocates terrapin eggs for protection from predators.

The Wareham Land Trust and Wareham Free Library are co-sponsoring the presentation. Refreshments will be served. For more information, call Mack Phinney at 508-295-4225.
