Friends Fourth Saturday Program: Discovering Hidden Biodiversity with Frogs and Salamanders
At Paris Mountain State Park
How do you find frogs and other amphibians? Dr. Melissa Pilgrim, professor at USC Upstate, will tell you how. Due to the issue of global amphibian decline, conservation biologists and resource managers are increasingly interested in conducting research evaluating the presence and persistence of amphibians in a region. Dr. Melissa Pilgrim and her undergraduate research group, Upstate Herpetology, will show the audience standard techniques used to identify the presence and abundance of amphibians in the Piedmont region of South Carolina. Meet at Park Center. No registration is necessary for this 2 hour program, and it is free after park admission.
10 am - 12 noon
This program is free with park admission
