This Week’s Program:
Join LRCC member Maggy for a lesson on how to responsibly find some new New Hampshire herps! “Herps” is a general term used to describe amphibians and reptiles, the study of these animals is called herpetology. In New Hampshire, we have many unique species of salamanders, frogs, toads, snakes and turtles. Did you know that amphibians are among the most affected groups in the current mass extinction event? Come and learn about some of our native amphibians, the things you can do to help protect them, and where to see them in the wild. We’ll also talk about species that we shouldn’t go looking for if they or their habitats are especially fragile.
Audience: Anyone interested in amphibians.
Materials: This Adventure Ecology will take place over Zoom, so all participants should have access to a computer and a reliable internet connection.
