Environmental Committee Quick Notes

5/16/2018



Environmental Committee FYI
Notes



* Shred-a-Thon Saturday, May 19th from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM or until
the


truck
is full. Location: Beaufort County Community College.




* Caution: Box
Turtles are on the move! Please take time to watch for them on our streets and
roads. Don't 'assume' that every bump in the


road
is a 'pine cone'! If you see a Box Turtle on the road and you can



safely stop to help just move it to the grassy side of the road in the



direction that it was going. They may hiss but do not bite! You can pick


it
up with a rag or paper towel or even your bare hand but remember to



wash with soap and water ASAP. Box Turtles have a high, domed shell



that is blackish brown with yellowish markings. They range in size from



2-7 inches in length. Heavy rain or many consecutive days of rain force



them to high ground ( roads ) because they are not good swimmers.




*Non-venomous snakes such as Black Rat Snakes, Black Racers, or


other rodent eating snakes that climb will on occasion eat eggs or
chicks


from bird houses. To protect the birds and these beneficial snakes
grease


the post or pipe that supports you bird house with a coat of mentholated


rub that can be purchased at a dollar store. This makes the surface


slippery and the strong scent disguises the smell of the birds and
nest


that attracts the snake. Rain usually will not affect the rub but
touch-up


may be required when temperatures are very hot. For more info regarding


reptiles go to herpsofnc.org a great site
for this information!
