Celebrations are free, community events. Everyone is invited to explore the fascinating world of amphibians and reptiles that are right in their own backyards and beyond. Meet celebrities featured on Animal Planet: Dogs 101, listen to Native American storytellers, watch puppet stories, create your own art and learn more about herp projects happening in your area of the state. You might even learn to identify a frog by its call!
