Recommended for all ages

Minnesota’s amphibians and reptiles (herps) contribute to the diversity of our ecosystems, yet their presence has changed much over time. Join graduate students Sam Weaver and Tom Radomski as they help us learn more about common Minnesota species and share their research. We’ll explore how the range and population of herps has changed over time and gain some insight into how the Bell Museum’s collections can help track those changes. Your questions are welcome during the live presentation!
