Mark Manning: Reptiles & Amphibians of Mercer County
Monday, April 15, 2019, at 8:00 pm
***MEETING LOCATION CHANGED*** Washington Crossing Audubon meeting on April 15 that features Mark Manning’s talk on the Reptiles and Amphibians of Mercer County will be held on the lower (basement) level room of the Campus Center referred to as the “Black Box.” The Campus Center is the building ahead and slightly to the left when the entrance driveway comes to a “T”, forcing you to turn left or right. You may park in the regular lot but it would be much more convenient to park in the lower lot off of Burd Street. If you walk toward the new outdoor volleyball court and enter the door by the shed, this entrance will bring people into the Black Box Theater area no elevator or stairs needed. The main Campus Center doors will remain locked. Please use this entrance; it will be unlocked from 6-9pm
New Jersey is home to approximately 70 species of reptiles and amphibians, and Mercer County hosts nearly 30 species in its forests, fields and wetlands. In this presentation, Mark will discuss the ecology and natural history of the frogs, salamanders, turtles and snakes native to our area.
Mark is a proud WCAS member and is a volunteer naturalist, avid birder and field herper. He has conducted or assisted in several reptile and amphibian inventories in the State of New Jersey. He has a B.S. in Environmental Science and Chemistry from Rider University, and is a teacher of chemistry and toxicology at Hopewell Valley Central High School. His greatest passion is exploring the outdoors with his family. In May Washington Crossing Audubon will welcome Mark as a member of the board!
Refreshments served at 7:30 pm; program begins at 8:00 pm.
