The turtles are collected from area ponds, rivers and other bodies of water and are marked based on the location they came from to ensure they return to their home at the end of the summer.

During each summer, turtles are cared for by trained and knowledgeable volunteers. Their summer home is large and imitates their natural habitat. With shaded pools for swimming, rocks and logs for basking in the sun and live minnows to hunt as well as other veterinarian approved turtle food.
