As Seen on TV: Wilson the Woodland Box Turtle

During mid-April, Public Affairs Manager Alex Wehrung paid a visit to the WHSV-3 studio in Harrisonburg with Wilson, one of the Center’s non-releasable education ambassadors.

Since January 2024, Wehrung has been featured in WHSV-3’s monthly Wildlife Wednesday series — short in-studio interviews that highlight seasonal wildlife help and advice topics including, skunk mating season, Virginia Opossums and most-recently, turtles.
