We are excited to announce at this conference the formation of an Ohio chapter of Partners in Amphibian & Reptile Conservation (PARC).  If you are unfamiliar with PARC, you can visit their homepage, as well as the site for the Midwest Regional Working Group.  Ohio has a storied history as a "cradle of herpetology," but has been without a statewide herpetological organization since the Ohio Herpetological Society grew to become the Society for the Study of Amphibians & Reptiles.  Don't miss this exciting opportunity to be involved in the kick-off of Ohio PARC.
