Dr. Goodman’s Herpetology class (BIOL 385) took a 4-day trip to the annual meeting of Southeastern Partners in Amphibian & Reptile Conservation in February 2013. We stayed in the lodge at Hickory Knob State Park in South Carolina and enjoyed a limited amount of “herping” due to cold weather during the stay (students below show our limited findings). The meeting was full of informative talks, workshops, and posters presenting research and applications of concepts covered in class. The HSC students, in their sophomore and junior years, engaged in lively conversation throughout the weekend with graduate students, post-docs and faculty, and also working professionals in a variety of government and non-profit roles.
