The May monthly management/monitoring coordination meeting will be held May 27th, 2015 from 9:30am to 11:30am at the USGS, in the downstairs conference room.
Topic: · Brad Hollingsworth from the San Diego Natural History Museum (SDNHM) will be giving a presentation on The Herp Atlas and Citizen Science Applications.
What is the Herp Atlas, you ask? Here's the Mission statement: To understand the biodiversity of amphibians and reptiles from Southern California and Baja California using both museum collection data and observations from citizen scientists. The Amphibian and Reptile Atlas of Peninsular California is a binational effort to bring biodiversity information to your fingertips. We intend to grow and refine the atlas resources as database sharing becomes more developed.

Normal monthly meetings are held on the fourth Wednesday of every month, except for the combined November/December meeting.
