Our third certification workshop featuring Dr. John Carr and the herpetofauna of northeast Louisiana is ready for you!

Here’s the agenda for the day:

Workshop 3 Flyer

Please note that we convene on the ULM campus in Hanna Hall, Rm 250. For those of you not familiar with campus, approach on University Ave. and look for the large Arkansas stone ULM sign at the entrance of a U-shaped parking area.

GPS users, the official address of the University is 700 University Ave., but Google Maps has that over in Bayou Park somewhere! The Arkansas stone entrance to campus is between Northeast Dr. on the north and Desiard St. on the south. Get into that 3-block stretch and you will see the sign.

When you turn into the entrance to the U-shaped parking lot, Sugar Hall will be on your immediate right and Walker Hall straight ahead at the top of the U. As your drive around the U, Hanna Hall is the third building you come to. Park in the U.

We will spend the morning on campus, caravan to Black Bayou Lake for field work, and debrief in the Visitor Center. See details on the flyer.

Now, BIG BONUS! Dr. Carr has offered a special 2nd after-dark trip for the purpose of calling frogs! We would reconvene at the lake at 8 p.m. and spend up to 2 hours seeing what goes bump–or ribbit, as the case might be–in the night. But he has to arrange this in advance, so shoot me an email if you are interested.

BTW, the night part would be totally optional. You will get full credit for the workshop by doing the day. However, if even a half a dozen folks are interested, I’m going to ask Dr. Carr to set it up because I want to do it!
