The Greater Cincinnati Herpetological Society is a non-profit organization geared toward the conservation and education of reptiles and amphibians. We were established in 1977 and continue to grow every year. The Greater Cincinnati Herpetological Society exists to provide for members a vehicle for exchange and sharing of resources, information, and ideas pertinent to herpetology. Our goal is to promote zealously, the welfare of reptiles and amphibians, through example, through education of the public and their representatives, elected and otherwise, and through the encouragement of responsible research.
Monthly meetings are held on the first Wednesday of the month at the Cincinnati Nature Center / Rowe Woods. Meetings begin at 7:00 pm and typically consist of a short business section followed by a program on herpetology or herpetoloculture.
