We meet at the Ballpark at Gillies Bay at 10:00am
The weather is beginning to warm up a bit now and some of our native reptiles are starting to come out of hibernation to take advantage of the warm sun when it shines. I have a report of a Western Painted Turtle being spotted on a log in Priest Lake and I've seen my first Garter Snake already. Our one native species of lizard is usually quite late to appear, but they do show on sunny days at the end of March. My photo is of an adult Northern Alligator Lizard on a pile of fine gravel at Blubber Bay. Please handle with care as their tails are quite fragile and will break off if you try to pick up this agile lizard.
