Was at the Great Blue Heron Reserve and saw signs noting the habitat having been restored for Painted Turtles. Does anyone know if they are actually present there? I saw one turtle but it was too far off to ID. I've heard that they do live in the Fraser Valley. What other locations are they found. I've only ever seen them at Yellow Lake in the Okanagan.
There used to be quite a few Painted Turtles at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve but lately, we have only seen an occasional one. They are easily seen at Sardis Park sunning with Red-eared Sliders on any available log.
