Explore the pavilions to meet live species from all corners of the planet, visit artistic classroom renderings of culturally-themed turtles, learn to identify all eight of Ontario’s turtles, and play timed turtle trivia to win a special prize! Visit Americas Wetlands and come face to face with a giant turtle mascot, inflatable replicas of Canadian species, a turtle bouncy castle, face painters and more!
