What is the Great Basin Herpetological Society?

About Us

We are a nonprofit educational society working to educate the general public about the proper care, maintenance and breeding of reptiles and amphibians who are frequently misunderstood. We promote the conservation of all wildlife and encourage the cooperation between amateur and professional herpetologists in the Northern Nevada area.

What we do

We host monthly meetings with speakers on a variety of reptile and amphibian related topics. We attend public events with our pets to foster acceptance and understanding. We attend birthday parties and hold classroom presentations. We also have field herping expeditions during the warmer months.
