Herpetology 101 (Session 2) *FULL*

Any and all reptiles and amphibians are stars during this week filled with these super cool, cold-blooded creatures. Leap into fun times with new friends as we search Balch Creek and the pond for amphibians like the Rough-skinned Newt and the elusive Pacific Giant Salamander. We’ll keep our eyes peeled for Red-legged Frogs and Long-toed Salamanders. Create “herptile” crafts and memories to last forever.

Price: $385 members/$405 non-members
