Youth Report: Not So Fast, All About LBL's Turtle Derby
Earlier this month, over 16 million viewers tuned in to watch the 139th annual Kentucky Derby. To celebrate the event, the Nature Station at Land Between the Lakes held their own, much slower race: the Kentucky Turtle Derby. WKMS Youth Reporter Aaron Sikkel covered the event and sat down with Naturalist Aviva Yasgur to learn about how turtles contribute to the region's ecosystem. This article features the full version of the interview.
Special thanks to Aaron's mom, Claire Fuller, for coordinating the interview and taking photos. If you are interested in getting involved in the WKMS Youth Radio Project, check out our page with more info, here.
