Please distribute, post, and pass along:

Registration is now open for the Ohio Reptile Research and Conservation Conference to be held on Saturday, March 13, 2010 in Columbus, Ohio. Sponsored by the Ohio Division of Wildlife and the Ohio Biological Survey, invited speakers from the Midwest will present findings of recent research and conservation projects involving Ohio’s snakes, turtles, and lizards.

The conference’s keynote speaker is Dr. Mike Plummer of Harding University in Arkansas. Dr. Plummer’s research focuses on the ecology of reptiles, including Green Snakes, Hog-nosed Snakes, and Softshell Turtles, for which he has published 49 articles and notes. He has also contributed to numerous books and co-authored the Amphibians and Reptiles of Arkansas. As with so many herpetologists, Dr. Plummer’s interest in reptiles blossomed in the buckeye state, when he moved to Massillon, Ohio at the age of 11.

If you are interested in learning more about Ohio’s reptiles and networking with other herpetologists and naturalists, then be sure to reserve this date and register for this meeting. A limited number of spaces are available for those wishing to present posters relevant to the conference topic.

The Conference will start with setup and registration from 8:30-9:00 AM. Paper presentations will commence at 9:00 AM. Lunch will be provided as part of the regular registration fee of $35 ($25 for students). All registrants to the conference will also receive an inaugural Ohio Wildlife Legacy Stamp (a $15 value). On-site registration fees are the same, but with no lunch. The conference concludes at 5 PM.
