2016 Field Trip

NHS 2016 Field Trip Information - This year we will be visiting Enders State Recreation Area in Chase County, near the t own of Imperial in southeastern Nebraska. We have been invited by The National Geographic Society and the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission to participate in a BioBlitz. The Activity will be held all day on Saturday May 21st. Camping is available at Enders SRA and lodging is available in Imperial. I will be driving out after work on Friday May 20th and Staying through Sunday. There are LOTS of places to herp in this SRA and there is a LOT of diversity. Venomous snakes are present, so please mindful of that while walking through grassy habitat. Please see the attached sheets for both the BioBlitz and our field trip. If you plan on coming, PLEASE let me know (402-578-4651 via text or call, or PM via FB) so I know who to look for on Saturday morning. Once we get there I can give advice on where to go and what you'll find. If you plan on collecting, please be familiar with Nebraska's laws regarding collecting herps from a state park or recreation area. Some specimens WILL be collected as voucher specimens.
