If turtles and snakes fascinate you, join N.H. Fish and Game  Nongame biologists Mike Marchand, Brendan Clifford and Loren Valliere to learn  about the amazing diversity of reptiles and amphibians in New Hampshire. This is the time of year when  many reptiles and amphibians are emerging from their winter slumber and  traveling to breeding grounds or simply basking in the sun. Hear about current  research being done on Blanding's turtles and black racer snakes, try out  equipment biologists use in the field, and learn what you can do to help  biologists monitor these amazing creatures!
