Join a Deering Estate naturalist on a ‘Herp Tour’ throughout the property’s restricted natural areas. This program offers a chance to understand our reptilian and amphibious neighbors in wild and urban habitats. The event begins with a “sneak peek” of Deering Estate’s live captive herp specimens. Participants will be granted the opportunity to observe some of our scaly, shelled, and amphibious residents including a few exotic species such as the boa constrictor (red-tailed boa).  Please meet at the Visitor Center.

Guests are encouraged to document their flora & fauna findings on the iNaturalist app. (Available on Google Play and App Store).

Cost: $15 per person (ages 4 & older; members & nonmembers). Spaces are very limited! Registration online only. No Sales at the Gate, no walk-ins/walk-ups. Bugs & mosquitos are very common, please come prepared (loose, long-sleeve shirt and pants suggested, bug repellant).
