California Turtle & Tortoise Club

TOO SLO Chapter

A Little TOO SLO History

The San Luis Obispo, CA Chapter

was founded in 1989 as TOO SLO

(Turtle Organization of San Luis

Obispo). In January 1992, TOO

SLO became a branch of the

California Turtle and Tortoise Club 

with only 30 members. After a year

under the Turtle & Tortoise Care

Chapter's sponsorship, TOO SLO became an official chapter

of the California Turtle and Tortoise Club.  

In 2015, TOO SLO has grown to one of the largest chapters in California Turtle and Tortoise Club with over 100 members. The chapter comprises local reptile experts that are ready to help follow chapter members with any reptile questions. TOO SLO is also a leading resource in San Luis Obispo County for anyone interested in learning more or wanting to adopt a turtle or tortoise.
