January 2017

It’s that time of year again! The WNY Herp Society will be holding its annual Photography Contest and 2017 Board Elections at the January meeting on Thursday the 12th.

The Photo Contest is your chance to show off your favorite reptile and amphibian photographs! The contest is open to non-members. All photos entered must have been taken by the person who is entering them. The winner of each category will win a WNYHS individual or family membership for 2017.

The Photography Contest categories are as follows:
1) Snakes
2) Lizards (including Crocodilians)
3) Turtles and Tortoises
4) Amphibians
5) Enclosures

Photos can be of captive animals (any setting), or animals in the wild. Only printed photos can be entered (no photos displayed on electronic devices, please). Matting and framing is not required.

Elections for the WNY Herp Society 2017 officers and board will also take place at the meeting. Only current WNY Herp Society members who have up-to-date paid dues for 2017 (or who win a 2017 membership in the photo contest) are eligible to run for board positions or vote in the election.

If you have any questions about becoming part of the WNYHS board, or how to become eligible to participate in the election process, please visit the WNY Herp Society page and click on the “Message” button to send us a private message, or use the Contact Us form on the side of this page.

We hope to see you at the January meeting!
