Herpetology 101 *FULL*

Reptiles and amphibians are stars during this week filled with these super neat, cold-blooded creatures, creating crafts and memories to last a lifetime. Leap into fun times with new friends as we search Balch Creek and the pond for amphibians like the Rough-skinned Newt and the sneaky Pacific Giant Salamander. In this camp, we’ll get to see these animal up close and learn about why they thrive in these habitats! We’ll even have a chance to meet Audubon’s Ambassador Western Painted Turtle up close!
