Boscobel's Thirteenth Annual Snapping Turtle Walk
In 2006, the snapping turtle was designated as New York State's official reptile. About 1200 of these reptiles live in National Audubon Society's Constitution Marsh, located just below Boscobel. Each June, female turtles climb up the steep hill to Boscobel's lush lawn to lay their eggs.
