Try putting an ad in the paper, or in local pet shops (or on the internet at places like Craigslist) advertising that your turtle is up for adoption. You can also try contacting local zoos; some of them have petting zoos or zoo classes for children which they need turtles for.

Whatever you do, don't release the turtle into the wild. Captive turtles should not be released into the wild. Not only are they unaccustomed to finding food for themselves, they can also get sick from being exposed to germs that wild turtles carry, or, they can spread their own germs to the wild turtles, and kill off the wild population.
