  2. Develop and distribute outreach materials about Blanding’s Turtle Best Management Practices (BMPs),
  3. Help format and contribute to a site action tracking database,
  4. Develop or update site-specific conservation plans for selected sites, and
  5. Participate in monthly conference calls with the Northeast Blanding’s Turtle Working Group and other discussions with state biologists, conservation groups, and other stakeholders.
