We are pleased to announce our 11th Places You’ve Never Herped (PYNH) event which will take place September 23-24, 2017! We will be surveying sites located approximately 5-10 miles west of Chatanooga within the Tennessee River Gorge. Event participants will get the chance to survey for reptiles and amphibians alongside Orianne staff and our partners from the Tennessee River Gorge Trust.
