Meet us at the Gresham Meadowlands
Amphibians and reptiles represent a major component of ecosystems, and being an indicator species can tell us a lot about the health of our own environment. However, human activities have led to their decline and a disruption to the balance of our natural ecology. Meet us at the Gresham Meadowlands for an exciting and engaging class on herpetology, where we will be learning how to identify our native amphibians & reptiles, their life cycle, habitat requirements, and the monitoring techniques we apply in Gresham!

This event is free and suitable for all ages.
