>“Talking Turtles” of New Bern Now (NBN)

The “Talking Turtles” photo was taken on Turkey Quarter Creek in the NC Wildlife Management Area on April 15, 2010. Anyone who has tried to take photos of turtles in the Croatan National Forest knows it’s very difficult because they’re elusive and jump in the water as soon as they sense humans or any other outsider. I was lucky enough to capture the above photo and credit the camera for taking the great shot!

One of NBN Blog viewers recommended that we name each of the weekly featured “Talking Turtles”. Another reader suggested the turtles talk about a New Bern business, non-profit agency, civic organization, etc to spread the word of what New Bern has to offer.

What do you think? Is it worth the time and effort to feature local entities? How about a turtle naming contest? We look forward to hearing your ideas.
