Reptile & Amphibian Educator Workshop
July 20-21
Cook Forest State Park will be conducting a two-day ‘Reptiles & Amphibians Educator Workshop’. Teachers will receive a copy of Amphibians and Reptiles of Pennsylvania and the Northeast and the Peterson’s Field Guide to Reptiles and Amphibians of Eastern and Central North America, as well as have the option to receive 15 ACT 48 hrs.
This workshop will emphasize hands-on activities and in-depth field identification surveys in a variety of habitat types. We will car-pool to various sites along and within the National Wild & Scenic Clarion River and Allegheny National Forest drainages to sample for snakes, turtles, lizards, frogs, toads, and salamanders.
The first day will mostly be terrestrial work, so proper hiking footwear and long pants are suggested. Much of Day 2 will be spent within aquatic habitats, so sturdy river footwear is a must (old sneakers are good, flip-flops and sandals are bad). Bring an extra change of clothes and sunscreen. A sturdy “river-walking
stick” will be useful.
