Chapter Meeting

April 15 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

April Chapter Meeting

Hugh Franks, Elm Fork Master Naturalist, will present “Care and Maintenance of Tiny Box Turtles“. Hugh will discuss some of the differences between nurturing adult box turtles and box turtle hatchlings. He will also focus on the additional challenges involved with care of them from the time they hatch until they are one year old.

Hugh was born in Louisiana and reared in deep, deep East Texas in the small town of Newton, Texas. Hugh has a BS in Political Science, minor in History from University of Houston. He also attended Texas A&M, the University of Texas of the Permian Basin and Texas Tech University where he received a Masters in Economics. He worked in the banking industry, managed a retail nursery and spent almost 30 years in education.

Hugh joined the Elm Fork Chapter Master Naturalists in 2019. He can be found volunteering at LLELA with the adult box turtles and hopes to volunteer at Ray Roberts when the visitor center reopens. Hugh is retired and lives with his wife in Crossroads. They have two daughters and son-in-laws and five grandchildren that keep them occupied and entertained.
