Here are the updates from the past 2 herpetology surveys. Herps are coming out more frequently and we are finding more individuals. The past surveys have still seen cold nights, but I'm hopeful for the warmer weather in the coming weeks. A couple of new species for the survey, Banded Water Snake - N. fasciata (a very large one that got away) and Narrow Mouth Toad - G. carolinensis, were found on the 24th.

Other than herps, Screech (seen) and Barred (heard) owls have been pretty active at night.
All observations to date have been uploaded to iNaturalist. Check out our progress on the Edith L. Moore Nature Sanctuary Project Page.
