Thank you for your interest in Kids for Turtles!

We have had an amazing time as a small organization rising awareness of the natural world that surrounds us. We have enjoyed every event and every interaction we’ve ever had with you, our supporters. We thank you for the great memories you have helped us build.

Unfortunately, the time has come to close the doors of our organization. This website will be up (though not monitored) until March 2022.

Thank you once again for your continued support!

Promoting Public Awareness Of Wildlife Habitats Through Environmental Education


KIDS FOR TURTLES Environmental Education is an educational and outreach organization based out of Orillia and serving the Simcoe and Muskoka regions. The group works with children, their families and extended families, seniors and all members of the community to bring a better understanding and stewardship to the environment around us. We were founded in 2006 and originally operated under the Twin Lakes Conservation Club. In 2007 we became incorporated and are now operating independently, with many successful projects behind us.

We have many members, a board of directors and seasonal staff. Our group provides an opportunity for young people and their families to interact with nature in a positive learning environment that endorses a healthy active lifestyle.

Despite our name, Kids for Turtles is dedicated to helping the environment and thus does not focus entirely on turtles nor do we only work with kids. We strive to improve our entire ecosystem by such activities as planting native plant species for butterfly gardens, habitat restoration along creeks in Simcoe Country, and through festivals such as the Butterfly count and Celebrate Lake Simcoe. Kids for Turtles is fun for people of all ages!
