  • This event has passed.

Scott Smyers, Herpetologist with Oxbow Associates, will be presenting a study of Wood Frog populations in high elevations in the White Mountains of New Hampshire on Friday, April 12 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Marion Natural History Museum. Scott Smyers is a Vice President and Senior Scientist at Oxbow Associates and has studied the behavior and ecology of amphibian and reptile species native to the eastern United States for more than 20 years. He has also led field studies for pond-breeding amphibians using various trapping techniques. His experience with amphibians includes laboratory studies of three species of pond-breeding salamanders in southern Louisiana including Ambystoma opacum, A. maculatum, and A. talpoideum.
Take a look at ecosystems that are hidden in plain sight, many along the well-travelled Appalachian Trail. Guests will learn about amphibian species distribution, changes in communities and shifts in calling phenology that reveal how complicated these ecosystems are for amphibian survival. The museum suggests a donation of $10 per person.Please register in advance at to ensure a seat.
