There are concerns of disrupting a turtle nesting area.

The Minnesota DNR Turtle poster contains information on Minnesota turtles and some ways to protect them. The reduction in mowing and pedestrian traffic as well as allowing the storm water run-off to infiltrate into the ground before entering Markgrafs Lake could all play into effect in protecting nearby turtles. The landscaping and basin will also help support other wildlife in the area as well.
