Herptile Bioblitz at Rogue River Preserve

REGISTRATION will open on April 1st at 6am.

Help us document reptiles and amphibians (herptiles) at Rogue River Preserve near Eagle Point. Participants will search for herptiles by flipping rocks and exploring woody material. Local experts will help with species identification and will model best search practices for the safety of people and animals. This event is part of the greater City Nature Challenge in Southern Oregon (inaturalist.org/projects/city-nature-challenge-2018-southern-oregon). Children are welcome accompanied by a parent or guardian.

In 2017, Southern Oregon Land Conservancy purchased this iconic 352-acre parcel along the Rogue River. For more information on the conservation of this special land go to our Heart of the Rogue webpage.
