Massachusetts Environmental Trust Grants (FY2016) includes partner project in Boxford

The Parker River Clean Water Association was among the recipients of Massachusetts Environmental Trust funding announced in July 2015 for a Blandings turtle project in Boxford.

Parker River Clean Water Association (Boxford) – $44,000 has been awarded for head-starting Blanding’s Turtle hatchlings in the upper Parker River. The project will calculate head started hatchling Blanding’s Turtles home range, movement patterns, and survival rates and monitor nesting areas within the Parker River Watershed. Head starting and research on Blanding’s Turtle hatchlings will help offset the unnatural decline of this state-listed threatened turtle species.
