Don Lewis (no relation), the State approved wetland biologist, completed his turtle sweeps as required by the Conservation Commission prior to construction. Although the habitat may have supported turtles at some point, he has found none and speculates that the busy road could be to blame. It would be neat if they re-established. Don is extremely knowledgable and really understands these critters. For more you info you can go to www.turtlejournal.com Here's a box turtle photo from their website. They're kind of cute, aren't they.
