NEPARC News

  • Save the Date!  The 2016 NEPARC Meeting will be held August 9-11 at Green Mountain College, Poultney, Vermont (more details coming soon!)
  • New NEPARC Conservation Award! Announcing a new NEPARC Award for Excellence in Herpetofaunal Conservation!  Last year, the NEPARC Steering Committee agreed to bring the ideals associated with the PARC Alison Haskell Award to the regional level in order to honor people in our region who work so tirelessly on behalf of herp conservation.

This Award is presented by NEPARC to recognize an individual who has made significant contributions to conservation of amphibians and reptiles in the northeast region of PARC. The award recognizes someone who has worked with partners to make significant achievements for conservation of herpetofauna by preventing loss of species or their habitats or has educated others to further the PARC mission.

The recipient will be presented with the award at the Annual Meeting of Northeast PARC, which is being held this year in Vermont August 9-11. Recipients are awarded registration and lodging for this meeting, as well as a plaque commemorating the award.

Please see guidance document for submitting nominations, due March 15.

  • Photo Project – NEPARC is trying to assemble a nice collection of Northeast herp species photos. Please consider bringing a CD of your photos to the meeting. Click here to learn more.
