Massachusetts supports a notable richness of reptiles and amphibian species for a relatively small and northern state. Nearly 50 spectacular and interesting species are found from the salt marshes of Cape Cod and Buzzards Bay to the calcareous fens of Berkshire County. In this 1-hr presentation we will discuss a representative selection of native species, including case studies, and a new effort to map species distributions and important habitats. 

Registration is required and space is limited.  Programs are held indoors at the Norcross Wildlife Foundation’s Visitor Center, 30 Peck Road in Wales, MA.

To register:  Registration has closed for this event as we are at capacity.
