It’s just around the corner! Our third certification workshop, that is: June 2, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. The certification page of this website is ready for you to register.

Herpetofauna of NE Louisiana

I just emailed a draft of an agenda with details to Dr. John Carr, our workshop leader, for his input and approval, thus the “Workshop 3 Flyer” link on the Certification page of this website is not yet active. However, the general plan continues to be convening in a biology lab on campus, then at some point caravaning to Black Bayou Lake NWR for field work.

The PayPal registration link is active, so get registered as soon as possible. As usual, I tested the link by being the first to register! Remember: You do not have to have a PayPal account to register via PayPal. You can use any credit card to do so.

If you pay via PayPal, you do not need to submit the workshop registration form. I tried something new last time, specifically creating a workshop roster and having you sign next to your name at the workshop. I like saving paper! So that’s what I’ll do again.

However, if you prefer the old fashioned way of mailing a check, please print the workshop registration form and send it with your check. Again, if you make arrangements with me in advance, you can pay on site.

Given our subject matter, I had to share another of the magnificent snakes we saw on our first field work experience at BBLNWR. But it is important to remember that “herpetofauna” is about a lot more than snakes. I’m personally hoping to see some salamanders. At last year’s BioBlitz at the ULM Biological Station, Dr. Carr found a marbled salamander under a log, but I failed to get a decent photo of it!
