Surveying in Congree Swamp National Monument

Pierson Hill, Kristine Grayson, Dave Stroupe, JD Willson, and Mike Dorcas meet up with Davidson Herp Lab alum, Shane Lindsay, and the folks he is working with at the Savannah River Ecology Lab (Whit Gibbons, Tracey Tuberville and Kurt Buhlmann). Along with our local guide Marcus, we helped the SREL folks for a day with a herpetological survey of one of the parks on their National Park Inventory project:
