Free Talk: Amphibians and Reptiles of San Diego County, Thursday, April 18th from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Elfin Forest Interpretive Center

With its varied topography of coast, mountains, and desert, the San Diego region, considered one of the world’s biodiversity hotspots, boasts a rich variety of amphibians and reptiles – from the arboreal salamander to the green sea turtle to the secretive San Diego banded gecko and the red diamond rattlesnake, many of which are endangered species.

Jeff Lemm, an herpetologist from the San Diego Zoo Institute for Conservation Research, will talk on identification, habitats, biology, and the conservation status of all 85 amphibian and reptile species found in the San Diego region as well as snakebite safety and conservation.

Pre-registration required by calling Ann Hough at (760) 471 9354 or sending an email to information@escondidocreek.org. The event is free, donations to The Escondido Creek Conservancy welcome.
