Ohio Amphibian and Reptile Conference

The Ohio Partners in Amphibian and Reptile Conservation (OHPARC) annual conference at the Nationwide and Ohio Farm Bureau $-H Center, 2201 Fred Taylor Dr., Columbus, OH 43210, brings together speakers from around the state to present findings of recent research and conservation projects involving Ohio’s amphibians, reptiles, and their habitats. If you are interested in learning more about Ohio’s herps and networking with others in the field, then be sure to reserve this date and register for this meeting.

We are pleased to announce this year’s Keynote Speaker Lauren Pond. Lauren is a documentary artist who explores the intersection of belief, culture, and human experience through photographs and audio. She is the author of Test of Faith: Signs, Serpents, Salvation, a visually stunning look into religious serpent handling.
