First of all let me thank you for your invitation.
Secondly GO PENS!!! (HMM, maybe that should have came first)
I'm from Southcentral PA, just outside of Harrisburg. As far as I know there are no Herp Societies in the area, other than yourselves, and NEPA (Northeast PA...) Which are both about a 2 1/2 hour drive from here.
I contacted the NEPA about starting a Herp Society in the Harrisburg area, but the only reply I got back was an invitation to join NEPA. Don't get me wrong, I visited their forum, and everyone seemed nice, but they're just too far away.
I wanted to start a local Herp society, but about as far as I got was to design a logo, and an invitation to join flyer (to put in area pet stores.)
I have been hesitant to contact any store owners due to the fact that I have no idea how to organize such an endeavor.
I was hoping to have meetings (preferably somewhere where people could bring a snake or too for "show and tell", Start a small rescue operation, and do some school exibits in elementary schools (to dispel myths about snakes and to promote Animal/Habitat conservation awareness)
Could you, or someone (or everyone) in your orginization, give me any advise on how to impliment and maintain such an entity?
Please feel free to E-Mail any any information.
Thank You for your time,
(The Hopefully soon to be)
Harrisburg Area Herp Association (HAHA)
