About the Great Basin Herpetological Society

Building on the groundwork laid by the Reno Herpetological Society’s founders and former board members, the former Reno Herpetological Society is now moving in a different direction, and we feel this deserves a fresh name for the new venture – Great Basin Herpetological Society. The current board and advisors are planning to mold the group into a more inclusive society, representing and supporting a broader cross section of interests and including all herpetological enthusiasts in the Great Basin. Scientists, researchers, backyard explorers, exotic animal keepers, supply providers – the list goes on and on. We also hope to expand beyond Reno’s borders and reach farther throughout northern Nevada, with plans to include meetings and events in Elko, Fallon, and beyond. This reorganization will allow us to better engage all members, keep them updated with current information, and encourage all forms of participation. We welcome and encourage suggestions about speakers, topics and events for the Great Basin Herpetological Society.
