UW Stevens Point Herpetology Society Visit and Tour
UW Stevens Point, Stevens Point WI
Date: Saturday, April 26th 2014
On Saturday, April 26th, we at MAHS traveled up to to beautiful Stevens Point in central Wisconsin to tour the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point’s herpetology and teaching labs and got up close and personal with many of their animals used in education and research. We’re usually the ones giving the talk or presentation, but this time, UWSP herp society student members also did an awesome job putting on one of their educational shows for us
Afterwards, we had lunch in downtown Stevens Point and then went field herping at a local spot nearby. Although it was still a bit too chilly up there compared to southern Wisconsin, we did manage to find a northern prairie skink, Plesteiodon septentrionalis. It was an all around great day!
