The Cape May County 4-H Youth Development Program Club Scales & Tails will be presenting a Reptile and Herpetology Clinic on Saturday, April 30th. 4-H Clubs and the public are welcome to attend this free clinic from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Lockwood 4-H Youth Center, on the Cape May County 4-H Fairgrounds, 355 Court House-South Dennis Road, Cape May Court House, New Jersey 08210.

Presentations will focus on reptile rescue and rehabilitation, local reptile wildlife including turtles and frogs, captive breeding of snakes, the roles zoos play in reptile conservation and increasing numbers of endangered species to save them from extinction, and endangered species in our area.

Scales and Tails is Cape May County 4-H’s Herpetology Club which started in the fall of 2013. The club has studied and interacted with a number of reptiles and amphibians at meetings, visited behind the scenes at the Reptile House at the Cape May County Zoo, participated in the Frog Hike and Talk at Cape May Point State Park, and volunteered in the community. Meetings are held the first and third Fridays of the month from September to June at the Lockwood 4-H Youth Center.

So, come learn new things and meet some of our scaly friends. For more information about the clinic or the Scales and Tails program, please call Club Leader Louise Sugar at 609-465-5336.
