Winter 2011-2012 was extremely mild, with very little precipitation and no winter snow pack.  This was the 3rd warmest winter on record for this region and March was the warmest on record.  Each  turtle was carrying an iButton temperature logger recording soil temperatures every 4 hours.   Air temperature loggers were placed near each hibernation site.
