  The Sawgrass Herpetological Society
Educational Committee

The Sawgrass Herpetological Society Educational Committee was developed by Michael Brennan when the society realized the need for public education regarding the reptiles and amphibians and their place in the eco-system.  With the help of volunteers, and the support of members, the society has been
giving presentations to the general public for more than four years.  We have delivered a broad spectrum of nature programs to such groups as the Boy Scouts of America, Girl Scouts of America, Graves Museum of Archeology and Natural History, various schools and libraries, The Department of Natural
Resources Protection Agency, The Royal Palm Beach Audubon Society, as well as county parks and nature centers.  We have done presentations for home learning groups, book stores, The City of Dania's 93rd Birthday celebration, and various herpetological societies.  We have traveled from the Florida Keys
to Orlando.

Our appearances are lively and one on one with our audiences, with plenty of hands on displays and dramatic demonstrations.  We encourage responsible pet husbandry and respect for our reptile friends.  Safety is always first with our animals and our audiences.  Our most popular talk is Florida's Native
Non-Venomous Snakes, although we offer a wide variety of presentations.

Founded in 1990, the Sawgrass Herpetological Society is a non-profit, tax exempt organization incorporated under the laws of the State of Florida.  The goals and purposes of the society are:

1. To encourage conservation of wildlife and preservation of wild habitats,
and of the reptiles and amphibians of Florida in particular.

2. To promote proper husbandry, diet, health care and captive propagation of
reptiles and amphibians.

3. To educate the public at large, and promote scientific study through the
facilities of the society.

4. To achieve greater cooperation and understanding between amateur and
professional herpetologists and the general public.

5. To promote the establishment of quality herpetological exhibits for public
viewing and education, at such times and in such places as to further the
societies interests.
