Tortoise Club to meet Jan. 8

The Ridgecrest Tortoise Club will kick off the New Year with a special program Monday, Jan. 8, by Heather Ponek of the Bakersfield Chapter of the California Turtle and Tortoise Club.

She will present information on tortoise food, including things that are good to plant for tortoises.

“Come with your questions,” said Bob Parker. “It’s a good time to think about adopting a desert tortoise, which will be available this spring.”

The meeting will be held at 7:30 p.m. in the Maturango Museum. Forms for membership and adoption will be available at the meeting.

For information visit or call Bob (760-446-2001) or Montynne (760-7793-1913).
