Southborough – The Southborough Open Land Foundation (SOLF) is inviting the community to a celebration performance of “Turtle's New Home” Sunday, Oct. 16. The performance, starting at 3 p.m., will be held in the Pilgrim Church hall, 15 Common St., Southborough.
In this performance, which is appropriate for children ages 4 and up, Blanding the turtle is on a journey in search of new, safe wetland habitat. The little pond where she has lived for 40 years is no longer safe! A road has been built between her pond and the high, sandy hill where she goes every spring to lay her eggs. When she meets Castor the Beaver, who is eager to build a dam and create a new pond, she sees that her problems might be solved. The audience will also meet the Blue Spotted Salamander, as well as a little boy named Edward and his nature-loving babysitter, Rachel, who teaches him how to look closely at nature for signs of animals and their activities.
The performance is free, with donations to SOLF gratefully accepted. To find our more about SOLF and its mission, visit www.solf.org.
