I apologize for the duplicate post; not sure what happened there. Please refer to this one, as I will provide updates here.
First, if you wish to RSVP for the event please let me know by 24 March. I apologize for the short turnaround but we need to give Kershaw-Ryan a solid number of attendees so they know how many camping spot we expect to occupy. Also you don't have to commit to all 5 days/4 nights; folks are invited to attend for 1 or 2 nights, or even a day trip if that's all the time you have. Please PM me or email me at [email protected]
Second, from Jason Jones at NDOW:
"The trip goals will include documenting as many species as possible for the database. Surveys will include road cruising, hiking transects, and listening for calling amphibians. The trip will be led by Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW) herpetologist Jason Jones and assisted by Steve Stocking.
Note that collecting will only be temporary for data and genetic voucher collection under NDOW research permits. For those attending, you will be required to sign up as an NDOW volunteer (please do so online beforehand; although volunteer forms will be available at the site) then you can have more opportunities handling and salvaging selected critters! Additionally time spent on the survey can be counted towards volunteer hours (e.g., resumes, CVs, community service [yikes!]). Finally, mileage on your vehicle may also be considered volunteer and may give you upwards of a $0.56 per mile deduction when doing your federal taxes…Consult with our volunteer coordinator for more info (Abbey Czarnecki see below) on this event and/or your tax guru for claiming mileage.

Let me know if you have any questions-
