Sabin, president of SOFO’s board of directors, will give participants an up-close look and educational lesson on snapping turtles. The Common Snapping Turtle, the largest freshwater turtle on the South Fork, has large, powerful jaws, can grow to be three feet long, and weigh an average of 45 pounds, and has been around since before the dinosaurs. During the walk, participants will view these turtles in their natural habitat.
