For a weekend packed with excitement, fun and learning---come herp with us!
An exciting meeting of minds. We will herp day and night looking for reptiles.
We walk to explore the habitat from a reptile’s perspective.
We will discuss their life, the kinds found across the world, conservation stories, current research, their plights and more.
We will share stories and have a fun time learning and exploring.
For participants from our previous workshops, it is a refresher of sorts, while for new entrants it will be an eye-opener.
