Welcome to the Lancaster Herpetological Society.  We are a group of reptile and amphibian enthusiasts.  We get together on the third Friday of each month at 7pm.  Our free meetings include expert speakers, guided nature walks, and socials.  Meeting topics vary between research, conservation, husbandry, and basic herpetology education.  Our club is open to all folks curious about cold-blooded creatures!  We hope you can join us!

Is LHS a reptile rescue? 

No, Lancaster Herpetological Society does not take unwanted pets.  Please try contacting Forgotten Friend Reptile Sanctuary  or Mid-Atlantic Turtle and Tortoise Society.

Does LHS do outreach programs? Can LHS come to my club, school, or event?

It depends on the time of year and how busy club members are.  You can send a detailed request to info@lancasterherp.org and board members will check their schedules and get back to you.  LHS asks a $50 donation for outreach programs.

Alternatively, you can hire Forgotten Friend Reptile Sanctuary or Creative Nature Works for school, scout, or other outreach programs.  LHS recommends both of these reptile educators.
