Turtlemania: Day of the Turtle

You know this barbecue restaurant sits on Bull Creek, right off Lake Austin, where turtles are so numerous that the Turtle Survival Alliance’s North American Freshwater Turtle Research Group has done research there for the past three years, right? And today the public is invited to watch the scientists and volunteers in action as they capture the turtles, tag new ones with a microchip, see how the previously tagged ones are doing, and then release 'em all back into the lake (9:30am-5:30pm,) And, for you, beer specials – and proceeds going to that TSA (5:30-8pm.)
