Reptiles and amphibians inventory – Solway Bend
Date: Sunday, June 1
Location: Meet at the parking lot behind (i.e. south of) the ORISE building at corner of Bethel Valley and Pumphouse Roads.
Time: 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Leader: John Byrd (CRESO)

Recommendations: Walking will be through fields and over level dirt/gravel roads (limited distances). Dress in layers, wear sturdy shoes, and bring bug spray and water. We will collect several turtle species, talk about local snake identification and discuss management of local herps populations. There will be plenty of opportunities for children to get involved and learn about the animals.
