Ernie the Turtle

Turtleford is the proud home of Ernie the Turtle. Standing at 2.4 m, Ernie is Canada’s largest and friendliest turtle. Designed by Don Foulds, Ernie was built to commemorate Turtleford’s acquisition of town status in 1983. Constructed with welded metal and wire mesh covered with cement, Ernie welcomes visitors along Hwy. 26.
