Calendar of Events
PARC maintains a running calendar of regional and national meetings and other herp-related events.
PARC operates a national mailing list to keep members and interested parties aware of ongoing events, projects, and information related to amphibian and reptile conservation. If you would like to join this free listserve, please follow this link to add your email to the list.
Department of Defense PARC (DoD PARC) is a new partnership initiative that provides a network through which the military installation biologists, natural resource managers, and professional herpetologists can work together to avoid future mission restrictions while providing stewardship for threatened and endangered herpetofauna. DoD PARC focuses on habitat and species management; inventory, research, and monitoring; and education, outreach, and training. It provides a framework for the effective management of amphibians and reptiles by the military services and their installations. DoD PARC's primary responsibility is to ensure that the DoD has the operational and logistical flexibility necessary for testing and training exercises.
Below are a few publications and resources developed by PARC partners and professionals involved in Reptile and Amphibian conservation across the US and around the world.
