Annual Camping Trip in ENP



We are exciting to announce the dates of our annual camping trip to Everglades National Park!  We invite you to join us for a weekend of great herping in one of Florida's top parks.  A more structured itinerary is to follow, but we will be road cruising the main park road looking to spot some of the numerous snake species within the park, both native and invasive. We plan to take hikes during the day for additional herp species, and see the American Crocodiles in the Florida Bay portion of the park.

 
We have reserved the group camping site within the park, so for a small fee you can camp with the society.  There should be plenty of room for everyone, we just ask that you RSVP to our President, Dermot Bowden (at dermotbowden@comcast.net) ahead of time if possible.  We would also ask that you fill out the following registration form and send it to Dermot:

You can camp with us Friday night, Saturday night, or both nights. However, you are also welcome to stay in hotels in the area or just come down for the day on Saturday to join in on the activities for the day.


This event will also be BYO-Everything (food, water, tents, etc.). We provide the campsite and some expertise on herping in FL, which will surely result in a terrific weekend of herping!
