We were founded in 2006 and originally operated under the Twin Lakes Conservation Club. In 2007 we became incorporated and are now operating independently, with many successful projects behind us. We have many members, a board of directors and seasonal staff. Our group provides an opportunity for young people and their families to interact with nature in a positive learning environment that endorses a healthy active lifestyle. Despite our name, Kids for Turtles is dedicated to helping the environment and thus does not focus entirely on turtles nor do we only work with kids. We strive to improve our entire ecosystem by such activities as planting native plant species for butterfly gardens, habitat restoration along creeks in Simcoe Country, and through festivals such as the Butterfly count and Celebrate Lake Simcoe. Kids for Turtles is fun for people of all ages!
