Please join us for an exciting Chatham Conservation Partnership (CCP) meeting this Thursday, April 21, 2016 from 9 a.m.-12 noon in Pittsboro to celebrate and learn more about frogs and their important habitats in Chatham County!

Jeff Hall, Herpetologist with the NC Museum of Natural Sciences, will provide information about the diversity of frogs in Chatham County, including information on their biology, natural history, life cycle, and the importance of frog habitats and how to protect them.

The meeting will be from 9:00 a.m.-noon in the auditorium of the Agriculture Building located at 65 East Chatham St. in Pittsboro. The meeting is free and open to the general public.

No need to register – just show up!

After Jeff’s presentation we’ll take a field trip to the Triangle Land Conservancy’s White Pines Preserve located south of downtown Pittsboro. Please dress for the weather and wear sturdy shoes that you don’t mind getting mucky. Right now it looks to be a warm day, so you may want to bring along a water bottle and snack.
