*20 YEARS of NEPARC – Back to New Jersey*

The 2019 NEPARC meeting will be on July 17 – 19 at Stockton University in Galloway, New Jersey, surrounded by unique Pine Barrens habitat.

This will be NEPARC’s 20th anniversary!!!  The first NEPARC meeting was held in 1999 in Stone Harbor, New Jersey.

As more meeting details become available, updates will be sent to the NEPARC Listserv and Facebook members and added to the NEPARC website.

Seeking Meeting Sponsors!

We are seeking sponsors for our 2018 annual meeting.  Your funds will provide important support for the conservation of herpetofauna in our region.  Sponsorships help offset the cost of the meeting itself, keep the cost for students attending the conference low, and fund the production of NEPARC educational material.  All supporters’ names will be included in the meeting agenda and will receive verbal acknowledgement during the meeting opening session.  Sponsors contributing $500 or more will receive one complimentary registration including meals (does not include lodging).
