Last Chance to Adopt
Baby Turtles
Neonate Spiny Softshell Turtles
We’re happy to share that our baby Eastern Spiny Softshell Turtles are doing great in the overwintering program! Next month they’ll be starting their new lives in Lake Champlain, but there is still time to sponsor these little guys and gals through our adoption program. Get involved now for updates and the chance to release the turtles with us in June.

Bottled-Water Free
Bottled-Water Free

At ECHO, we have always encouraged reusable water containers. In the best interest of environmental action we are now making our campus bottled-water free! Thanks to a partnership with Clear Water Filtration, of Warren, we will receive three water filtration filling stations inside our building. These should arrive later this month in time for our new exhibit, Smokey Bear & Woodsy Owl: Home Sweet Home, which will teach us about conservation and how to have fun and safe outdoor adventures. Don’t have a reusable water bottle? Visit our gift shop for some great options.

All the best,

Phelan Fretz
Executive Director
