Welcome to the Southern Nevada Herpetological Society

Join us for a Picnic in the Park

Reptile fun in the park on Sunday June 22, 2014 at the Buckskin Basin Park (Tenaya Way and Gowan) Festivities to begin at 5pm. Please bring a covered dish to share, this is always a potluck with yymmy stuff. If you bring along your scaly friend make sure to bring a secure enclosure too. It’s that time of year where we can’t predict the temperatures so please keep that in mind while traveling with our beloved pets. They do not sweat to cool down like mammals so the heat can be fatal for them.

The Southern Nevada Herpetological Society is a non-profit organization dedicated to education, rehabilitation and preservation of native and non-native reptiles in Nevada. SNHS is open to anyone interested in reptiles and amphibians. The membership fee for the year is only $30 for a family and your first meeting is free.
