Hey everyone!

I'm looking for herpers in Mississippi willing to mentor teenagers. I just finished a week long conservation summer camp with 23 great kids. A lot of these kids are really interested in reptiles and amphibians but their parents don't approve. Many told me that they get scolded for playing with snakes instead of killing them. At the end of the week a handful of the students approached me to ask how they can learn more and get involved. My personal experience was that going out with other herpers in the field is the best way. I live in Starkville so I can take out the kids in this area and probably the ones in Oxford too but there is a 16 year old in Clinton, a 12 year old in Hattiesburg and an 18 year old in Tylertown which are a little far. Is anyone interested or willing to show these kids the ropes and nurture their passion?
