Holt Park is a jewel in our neighborhood. On your next visit walking the trails, make a point to stop by the Nature Center cabin to visit the critters. Ranger M. Tillery works with home school kids to support their science curriculum, and they have named the resident terrapin “Poppy.”
Until recently, Poppy’s habitat was a bit limiting. Alex Dusza from BSA Scouts Troop 16 has built a new habitat for our favorite neighborhood turtle as part of his Eagle Scout project. The new hundred-gallon tank includes a platform for Poppy to warm herself under the lamps, and plenty of water to swim in. Her habitat also includes some live clams to filter the water naturally and help keep Poppy healthy and happy. Thanks, Alex! The Nature Cabin is open on Saturdays from 12:00 – 3:00pm.
Make time to visit us and join in on the fun! Please pre-register for Holt Park programs on our website.
