Event Details

Making wildlife observations count: Citizen Science

led by Dr. John Herman

April 29th at 9 AM

Join Dr.Herman for this hands-on strolling science seminar where you will learn how to turn a regular  hike into something more. We all love to hike nature trails because of the amazing way our senses are engaged, whether it is smelling a flower, hearing a bird, or seeing a beautiful snake. On this hike, we will see how these everyday nature observations can be scientific and used to increase the conservation of wildlife. Learn how to make your nature hikes today ensure that wildlife can continue to fill future generations with wonder.

John Herman grew up on a small family farm on the shores of Lake Erie in Northwest Ohio. He worked as a Herpetology Zookeeper at The Toledo Zoo, received his Master’s and Doctoral degrees from The University of Toledo, and is now a Wildlife Biologist at Florida Gulf Coast University. Reptiles and amphibians, particularly snakes, are his main research interest but he has a passion for all wildlife. One of his favorite pastimes is walking the CREW trails with his two kids.

We will almost certainly get our feet wet, so wear shoes and clothes that can get nasty! It would be helpful to have a notebook, binoculars, and a camera/smart phone (but know the dangers of electronics getting destroyed in the field). This is a hike you don’t want to miss. Registration is required.

This is part of the CREW Strolling Science Seminar series, an annual series of scholarly walking seminars designed specifically for adults to gain in-depth knowledge about the science of CREW.

CREW Land & Water Trust

The CREW Land & Water Trust was established in 1989 as a nonprofit organization to coordinate the land acquisition, land management, and public use of the 60,000-acre Corkscrew Regional Ecosystem Watershed. We work closely with our partners, the South Florida Water Management District and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to ensure the protection of the watershed. This watershed, the largest intact watershed in south Florida, straddles Lee and Collier Counties and provides aquifer recharge, natural flood protection, water purification, preservation of wildlife habitat, and public recreation.  CREW's majestic 5,000-acre marsh is the headwaters for the entire watershed.
