*Remember, if payment is deferred or does not complete processing, you are not on the event registration roster. 

This Clinic is a first-time unique experience when we will explore live animals, their adaptations, if they are endangered, and if so, why. Blue Heron Nature Preserve is home to 4 amazing Amphibian Foundation labs,and where critically endangered salamanders are part of a re-population experiment. The "Metamorphosis Meadow" lab is the only one like it on the planet. We will visit a remote lab (crossing a creek, so bring extra shoes) and experience Conservation in action. There is an interview process at the end of the Clinic, so be flexible with pick-up after 1:00 pm, and keep in touch with your Scout. Lunch, snack and reusable water bottle are a must.
