Turtles and Coffee at EFW!

On Friday, May 9 the EFW Library hosted an afternoon coffee hour in collaboration with Frenatae, the Entomology Department graduate student group. Guest speaker John Moriarty from Ramsey County Parks joined us (with his LIVE Red-footed tortoises, box turtle, and wood turtles) for coffee and chocolate turtle treats. The event was very lively and we all learned a lot about these cool herps. Thank you, Margaret Borg, for organizing this fun event!
