Tortoise club meet Monday

The Ridgecrest Chapter of the California Turtle and Tortoise Club will meet Monday, Oct. 12, at 5 p.m. “so it won’t get dark on us,” said Bob Parker.

“It’s still hot out, especially for October, but our desert tortoises will eventually be going under for the winter. If you have questions on this subject, other topics, or are interested in adopting a desert tortoise, you are welcome to come to a get-together and discuss these topics.”

Members and guests will meet in the open-air amphitheater at the Maturango Museum.

“The benches are about 6 feet apart, so with our masks, we’ll be able to stay safe,” said Parker.
