Walking for turtles 

Sixty-three people joined in the Turtle Walk in Haliburton on Saturday June 2 which started at the high school. Although money is still coming in organizer Leora Berman said so far all of the walks together raised nearly $7000. Donations can still be made to until July 1. Money is being divided between the turtle trauma centre and the creation of tunnels that allow turtles to cross under roadways avoiding being hit by passing cars. /DAVID ZILSTRA Staff
