Back in May, Wilson and Gator, two of the resident turtles at La Plaza Cultural, went missing.
In a bit of welcome news (for once), the turtles have been found... new signage up notes that the two are awaiting reintroduction to the pond here on the southwest corner of Avenue C and Ninth Street...

Moving forward, there will be a turtle barrier around the water in the community garden to allow for "safe basking."
No word on how far away Wilson and Gator got.

Wilson and Gator, two of the resident turtles at La Plaza Cultural, are missing.
EVG reader Chris W. shared this missing poster from outside the community garden on the southwest corner of Avenue C and Ninth Street. There's an undisclosed reward for their return. No word if they were stolen or made a getaway on their own...

An EVG Facebook friend shared a WTF story from over at the Ninth Street Community Garden at Avenue C. Last week, someone gathered the garden's turtles ... and dumped them into a hole in the back of the garden. Thankfully, Garden volunteers recovered the turtles. None of the turtles were apparently hurt.
Per our Facebook friend: "So sad that someone would do that ... those turtles are a bit of a main attraction. Hopefully they'll be left alone."
