Campfire Talk: Herps Around Us

Join us for a fun campfire talk in the Great Outdoors!

Campfire Talks are a series of educational & entertaining programs located outside in DeSoto State Park. Campfire programs are held many Friday & Saturday evening (June –October) in our large campfire ring inside the improved campground. Talks are for all ages, & open to everyone!

Amphibians and reptiles comprise about 17,000 species of vertebrates on this planet, and surprisingly, many species are ‘comfortable’ living with people. Come & join naturalist Jamie Rogers from Wallace State as she presents this talk about the ‘friends’ that live among us. After the program, you may choose to go on a night walk to the frog pond (near the Lodge) to listen for fascinating night critters (be sure to bring a flashlight/headlamp!)

Seating is limited, so bring your own comfortable camp chair if you wish.
