2020 TOO SLO Update

I hope you and your loved ones are doing well as we get through the COVID-19 pandemic. I wanted to give an update to the state of the TOO SLO chapter. We have suspended all chapter meetings and activities until further notice. We will resume activities when deemed safe for all members. Membership dues will be suspended until the chapter resumes its activities.

If you are interested in adoptions or have a turtle/tortoise that needs a home please reach out to Turtle & Tortoise Rescue of Arroyo Grande. They are still operating and are more than happy to assist. Below is the website and contact information.

Phone Number - (805) 458-1949

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to the chapter. I will send another update of the chapter in May when we will hopefully have a better idea when we can resume activities. The hope will be this Summer but your safety is our primary concern. Thank you again for being part of the chapter. We miss seeing you and we will see each other again! Have a great day!
