Abstract: Because of the long-term nature of this project, students were able to see major changes in land use including clear-cutting and they were able to assess the environmental impacts on various reptiles and amphibians due to human uses of particular areas of the site. Project Description During a week-long residential summer program, high school students were introduced to local species of reptiles and amphibians and engaged in a variety of general population studies including lentie aquatic turtles, box turtles and calling amphibians (i.e. the only amphibians that typically vocalize are male frogs who are calling female frogs to the breeding pools or defining territory).
