Colorado Herpetology

This class is an advanced class investigating the evolution, natural history, and conservation of reptiles and amphibians in Colorado. We will be taking a more detailed look into the reptiles and amphibians occurring across Colorado so be prepared to be overwhelmed by our states amazing herpetofaunal diversity. This class will meet on Wednesday nights for four weeks in a row and be followed by an optional (but highly recommended) field trip to see critters in the wild (bring your cameras!). You must successfully complete the class in order to attend the field trip.

When: Wednesday, April 12, 2017 - 7:00pm until 8:30pm

Wednesday, April 19, 2017 - 7:00pm until 8:30pm

Wednesday, April 26, 2017 - 7:00pm until 8:30pm

Wednesday, May 3, 2017 - 7:00pm until 8:30pm

Where: To Be Determined - we are still working on the best place to hold this class

Who: Limited to 12 Adults and Children over 16 year old

Class Fee: $150/person includes textbook (Colorado Amphibians and Reptiles by Geoffrey Hammerson)

Optional Field Trip Fee: $75/person includes transportation and light snacks/water (lunch not included - we will provide a cooler for a sack lunch as we will likely not want to stop for lunch - too many critters to see!). Field trip will be determined by the weather but will occur either on a weekend (we are targeting May 6th or May 7th).
