Since 1964, the California Turtle and Tortoise Club (CTTC) has been promoting and facilitating the care and adoption of native and nonnative turtle species. The Ridgecrest CTTC Chapter has worked in the community to advance awareness and familiarize children and adults alike with the natural world around us.
