Herpetological society forming

Published 4:20 pm Thursday, July 8, 2010

Do you live in Upstate South Carolina or the foothills of North Carolina? Are you interested in reptiles and amphibians? Do you want to meet more people with similar interests?

If these questions peak your interest, then come to the Landrum Public Library on Tuesday, July 20 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. for a free viewing of Herpers, an award-winning documentary about reptile enthusiasts from around the country.

There will be a meeting immediately afterwards about starting a herpetology club in the area. Organizers are looking for enthusiastic and dedicated people of any age or walk of life to join. All they ask is that you have an insatiable appetite for reptile knowledge and conservation and are willing and ready to be part of a group with the same aspirations.
