Join in on the Herp Hike (salamanders) being led by Dr. Kurt Regester at the beautiful Mineral Springs, Saturday, May 16th from 2-4 PM in Emlenton. As you stroll through the woods, you will be searching for and identifying different species of salamanders.
Dr. Kurt Regester is a professor at Clarion University. He teaches in the Department of Biology and his areas of interest include wildlife ecology, ornithology, population biology, and amphibian ecology including herpetology.
Ever since 1867 the beautiful Mineral Springs has had the oldest oil producing well in the United States. The oil industry caused environmental woes in the region, but this popular park bounced back to a very healthy state. The pristine habitat supports a plentiful grove of Hemlock trees, acidic loving plants, and a trout stream housing a rich amphibian population.
