CAMDEN — Coastal Mountains Land Trust will co-host an online Zoom presentation titled Reptile Conservation and Management in Maine on Thursday, June 10, at 6 p.m., with the Camden Public Library. 

Join CMLT as they meet Derek Yorks, MDIFW lead biologist on reptile issues. Learn about the type of work Yorks does to preserve, conserve, and promote Maine’s reptiles.

Yorks will give an overview of how different projects help to maintain healthy snake and turtle populations and habitats. He will also share what it is like getting to work with species like black racers, wood turtles, Blanding’s turtles, and more.

Learn what rare reptile species can be found in Midcoast Maine and how you can help to preserve them for generations to come.
