Please join us on Saturday, June 11th, from 9am-12pm as we look for reptiles and amphibians at Harris Lake County Park! We’ll be led by Alvin Braswell, who is retired from the N. C. State Museum of Natural Sciences, where he spent over 40 years in various curatorial roles with reptiles, amphibians, and freshwater fishes before being the Research Lab Director, and later, assuming a Deputy Museum Director for Operations position.
Alvin plans to set turtle traps the day before that we can check during our walk. He will also do some dip netting to see what may be found in the pond edge vegetation. With a little luck we may be able to see Yellow-bellied Sliders, Painted Turtles, Snapping Turtles, Eastern Mud Turtles, Musk Turtles, and possibly a snake or two and various frogs (Northern Cricket Frog, Green Frog, Green Treefrog, Bullfrog, Southern Leopard Frog).
Registration for this event is CLOSED.
Please join us for a future event!
