Hosted by Kevin Hining of the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission, this workshop offers participants the opportunity to learn about amphibians. Through classroom presentations, hands-on fieldwork and activities, participants will learn about basic biology, habitat requirements and human interactions with salamanders, frogs and toads. We will also learn to identify several local amphibian species. This workshop provides five hours Criteria II or III credit toward the N.C. Environmental Education Certification, or 0.5 CEU credit.
