Youngsters Learn to Spare Diamondback Terrapins


By Herald Staff

STONE HARBOR MANOR — Stone Harbor Elementary School kindergarten students recently raised more than $100 to help baby turtles return to the marsh.
The children sold turtle-shaped cookies throughout the year and donated the proceeds to the Wetlands Institute’s Turtle Release Program.
Sturdy Savings Bank matched the donation.
Roberta Dean, kindergarten teacher, students Joe Ferguson and Paige Conte, both 6, and Sherrie Meenan, Sturdy Savings Bank’s Stone Harbor branch manager, prepare to release turtles into the marsh. The tiny turtles were retrieved as eggs from females hit by cars, and brought to the Wetlands Institute to incubate.
