This Grandpa Has A Secret In His Backyard, And The Whole Neighborhood Is In On It!
This retired man lives in front of a small lake, and the neighbors don’t call him anything but “The Turtle Man.” The neighborhood kids look forward to the summer time because it means that they will get to spend their days learning about nature from this happy old man who loves to teach anyone who will listen about turtles.
His name is Ken Wilson, but “for the longest time we didn’t even know what his name was,” his neighbor admits. “We just called him The Turtle Man.” He had approached the mothers in the neighborhood and asked if their kids liked turtles. “What kid doesn’t love turtles?” She replied.
They all went into his back yard and discovered an amazing treasure…The Turtle Man had dozens of turtles living in this little area behind his house! He began teaching the neighborhood kids all about turtles and nature in general. It’s almost like a summer camp, but no one has to take a trip to get there!
The girls love to see where the turtles sleep in the sun. A gnarled old tree branch is the ideal place for dozens of turtles to bask in the sunlight, but as soon as the girls get close enough, the turtles jump into the water because they know that treats are on their way! Everyone loves to feed the turtles, but watch out for those little turtle beaks!
