SNHS members come from a wide range of experience from beginner to expert. Our membership is open to anyone interested in these magnificent animals, reptile owner or not. We are dedicated to the education of our members, and the general public, in regards to the conservation, ecology, captive care and responsible breeding of reptiles and amphibians. The Society also takes an active role in legislative and environmental issues affecting these animals and their habitats. We host a variety of events during the year providing education programs with special meetings for our kids club (SNHS Jr. Herpers) If your child loves reptiles check out one of our Jr. Herper Meetings too. We host informative bi-monthly meetings often with a guest speaker addressing issues and concerns relevant to today's reptile owner. 

SNHS is a dedicated non-profit reptile rescue and adoption group with a tremendous success rate for recuperating sick animals and finding great homes for them working with other rescue groups in the area.
