I was digging in my xeribed and saw all these baby turtles. I wasn't sure what to do, so I just covered them back up. We have a little pond afew blocks away, Any suggestions?

Maybe put a shallow dish of water out nearby with rocks and sand?

Good idea! I will leave them a little home so when they are ready to emerge they will go to the water and I can bring them down to the pond. It was funny to see them b/c I had red ear turtles as pets long time ago. My dtr thinks I should keep them as pets
