Turtle Habitat

In 2002 and 2003, the Roundtable installed 18 turtle basking platforms and 12 basking logs at 11 locations in the Rideau River in Smiths Falls, Merrickville, and Kemptville.

14 turtle crossing road signs were installed on roads to alert motorists of locations where turtles frequently cross. To learn more about turtles and how to protect them click on: A Primer on Turtles (PDF File)
