SA53 Herpetology Field Trip | 2020 | $20
Time - 9:30 am - 2:30 pm
Trip Leader(s): Matt Kluber
Meet in the community center lobby.
Reptiles and amphibians are sometimes overlooked, but they can be fascinating! Matt works as a biologist for Green Diamond Resource Company, herpetology is his specialty. The redwood forest is home to the Pacific Giant Salamander, which can grow to nearly 1 foot in length and is one of the only salamanders that vocalize – a faint yelp when captured! Uncover the world of snakes, turtles, salamanders, frogs, and more. Please pack a lunch. Spotting scopes unnecessary for herps, but may be used for incidental birds if you wish. Wear boots and bring a reusable water bottle. Restrooms are available at the community center, though not once we are out in the forest.
