Herpetofauna of the Duke Forest, our citizen science project monitoring amphibians and reptiles, returns for its third year. We are looking for a dedicated team of citizen scientists to help us collect data. The first session runs March – June, and the second session from July – October. We need new and returning citizen scientists to help us continue this important work.
|Citizen scientists will observe and record the herpetofauna (amphibians and reptiles) they encounter in designated locations across the Duke Forest’s Durham Division. Data collected support a larger effort underway at the Duke Forest to better protect the wildlife species that call it home by learning more about them. What species are still out there? How many of each species? Where do they hang out?|
|If this sounds interesting to you, please read more about the program and please mark your calendars for the required training (Saturday, February 29th, 9am-12pm). EVERYONE that wants to participate in the first monitoring session this year, which will run from March 1st – June 30th must attend this training.|
