5 yards of mulch + 1 of our Favorite Customers = 1 Great Science Project

Karen Pianki

Our friend Teresa S., had just ordered a pile of mulch for her yard.  She was planning to get up at the crack of dawn to move it so she had them deliver it on the street just at the end of her driveway.  She sipped her coffee, greeted the sun, then walked out her front door to get started. She was greeted by a big ol' snapping turtle, sitting right on top of her mulch.  Upon further discovery, she realized it wasn't just sunning itself, it was popping out eggs at a pace that would make rabbits blush.

Not wanting to harm the she-turtle, she called Kensington Metropark to inquire about moving said turtle and the eggs and learned more than she ever wanted to about these fascinating creatures.  First of all, once the eggs are laid, mama scoots away, never again to check on her enormous pile of eggs (62 in this case.)   After filling her head with all this knowledge, Teresa recruited a few eager kids to turn this event into a learning experience.  They carefully filled a garbage can lid with mulch, gently laid the aggs atop the mulch, and relocated each and every egg to the designated location in her back yard.  Not many of these eggs will ever hatch, as there are many natural predators, but I think a bit of fun was had by all in their valiant attempt to make sure each little ping-pong ball-sized egg at least started out with a fighting chance.
