Madison Area Herpetological Society

Madison Kid’s Expo

A  lot of preparation went into this event.  This was potentially the largest event MAHS would be part of.  With attendance in the tens of thousands, we were sure to be in for a long weekend.  The opportunity for us to attend this show was donated by Noelle Tarrant of Zoozort who let us team up with her and donated a large area for us to set up.  Without her help, we would not have been able to afford to do the show, so a HUGE thanks to Noelle!  Many members were available to help with the show and our area got a lot of traffic.  We had animals out and allowed kids to pet them, we had many animals on display and spent time educating people on their care, and we had an area where kids could do reptile crafts and play some games.  Our president, Ryan McVeigh, also gave two talks on The Top 10 Best Beginner Reptiles and Native Species of Reptiles and Amphibians in Wisconsin.  Overall we had a great time, and reached an astounding amount of people.
