New Mexico
Herpetological Society

Society Ice Cream Social

Thursday, September 14 5:00-6:30pm

We will be hosting a meet up and ice cream social for current and future members at Rio Grande park in Albuquerque. Come meet RV, the large sulcata tortoise, who will be chomping on tortoise treats along with us. There will be a cooler full of frozen treats, a table with NMHS logo t-shirts sales and NMHS information and plenty of opportunities to socialize with fellow herpetology enthusiasts. This should be a great opportunity to connect with our community of all ages and share stories of recent herp adventures! Rio Grande Park is located near Tingley Beach and the Zoo. A google maps point to the parking area can be found here.

Mills Canyon Field Trip

September 15-17

We will be exploring Mills Canyon in Harding County, east of Wagon Mound. This herp hotspot is located in northeastern New Mexico and if the herpetological diversity isn't enough the stunning canyon walls and verdant river valley will inspire and awe. From the Albuquerque area expect a 3.5 hour scenic drive northeast, though the roads are generally good this region is relatively remote so prepare for a rural and cellular free weekend. A beautiful campground is located in the canyon, several lovely campsites are available first come first serve with shady oaks and junipers. With picnic tables and pit toilets this site has just about everything you need! (But be sure to bring plenty of water) For more information please feel free to reply. A google maps point for the campground can be found here.
