Sunday, June 2, from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m., the Hudson Highlands Nature Museum, in partnership with the Hudson Highlands Land Trust, will host Turtle Tales at Hubbard Lodge, 2880 Route 9 in Cold Spring. Families are invited to join Environmental Educator Carl Heitmuller to learn about common turtle species and basic turtle biology, meet some of the museum’s native turtles and discuss why these ancient reptiles are facing many challenges to their existence.

Hubbard Lodge is part of Fahnestock State Park, and the sign for the entrance is on the east side of Route 9 just north of Route 301.

Admission is $7 for adults, $5 for children (ages 5 and up), but museum members pay $5 for adults, $3 for children. Visit hhnaturemuseum.org or call 845-534-5506, ext. 204 for more information.
