The WNY Herp Society is very pleased to announce that the 15th Annual WNYHS Reptile Show and Sale will be held on Saturday, October 22, 2016 from 10 am to 4 pm, at the Rescue Fire Company No. 5 Hall, 1241 Strad Avenue, North Tonawanda, NY! You can check out all of the details, including information about the all-new Herp Education Room on the 2016 Reptile Show page. 

The Reptile Show and Sale is the primary fundraiser for the not-for-profit WNY Herp Society. Your attendance at the Show enables the Society to host monthly meetings and other events for members and visitors, provide herp education in our local community, and fund grants for reptile and amphibian research. We appreciate your support!

Vendor tables are available, but are filling up quickly. If you are interested in vending at the WNYHS Reptile Show and Sale, please visit the Vendor Information and Application page.


The topic for the WNY Herp Society’s September meeting will be using field marks and field guides to identify flora and fauna, with an emphasis on herp identification. This will be a follow-up to our outdoor Nature Scavenger Hunt, held at the August meeting.

Join us to learn how to use resources such as field guides, range maps, call recordings, cellphone apps and internet databases to discover the identity of the living and non-living things we find in our environment.

If you attended the August meeting, please bring your completed Nature Scavenger Hunt worksheet, notes and collected samples to share, discuss and identify. Everyone is encouraged to bring any field guides or other nature study materials they may have.

We hope to see you at this fun and informative meeting! For more information, please visit the September 2016 Meeting page, or visit us on Facebook.
