Join the Mounted Eagles Turtle Wranglers as they provide an exciting and fun experience for summer visitors from June thru August. Every Wednesday at 2pm in the center of downtown Nisswa at the famous Turtle Race Track, you’ll find our Executive Director, Lynn Fairbanks and her dedicated turtle wranglers keeping the turtles and the track hydrated for the hundreds of racers who attend each week.
Mounted Eagles has once again provided turtles and turtle wranglers for the famous Nisswa Turtle Races. Every Wednesday from June thru August our dedicated Executive Director, Lynn Fairbanks, loads the turtles from their summer home at her place into her turtle trailer and transports them to Nisswa where they provide hundreds of children and adults with a summertime experience. Not only does she haul the turtles, most of the time she picks up the wranglers along the way as well. Nisswa Chamber of Commerce has allowed Mounted Eagles to hold this position for a number of years now and thru their generosity it has become our 2nd largest fundraising event. It’s not an easy task and takes dedication from Lynn and the turtle wranglers. Thanks to all.
There are only 4 more turtle races of the 2019 season! Be sure you come on down!
