WE WANT TO INTRODUCE OUR NEW MASCOT
This turtle sculpture was created from an old wrecking ball that was divided in half.  The students at the Biddeford Regional Center of Technology took this project on as part of their senior class welding and metal fabrication studies.  Working under the direction and guidance of instructor Brian Robillard the students used their creativity, artistry, and welding skills to create our Mascot Blandings Turtle who now sits at the entrance to Terrapin Trail at Blandings Park Wildlife Sanctuary.
