Dan Snyder's Bio

I'm an outdoor/ nature loving person who grew up on a small farm with a lot of woodlands and farmlands around where I live. I lived in the Schaefferstown, Brickerville area for 23 years. I know Lebanon, Lancaster, Berks, and now York Counties like the back of my hand. I was always looking for herps growing up and gained a lot of knowledge through books, tv shows, being out in nature, and other herpers like me. I went to ELCO durning my school days. I took all college prep. Ecology, Biology, Agriculture, and AP Environmental Science courses. I was in the Environment Club from 6th grade till 12th. We won 4 titles @ Middle Creek in that time frame. I've done plenty of stream studies while in the Environment Club and learned about all the species of PA. ( Reptiles, Amphibans, Mammals, Birds, Fish, and Plants.) I was also part of the Boy Scouts ( Troop 417, Horseshoe Trail District) for 8 years. Every year I went to summer Camp. For our troop it was mostly at Camp Mack or Camp Bayshore. I was also a member at Cocalico Sportsmen's Association for 2 years. The older I got, the more I just wanted to go and travel to different State Parks. Durning High school I got a lot of my friends into Herpping, which was a lot of fun. Durning summer and even winter you could have found me and my 'Herpping Buds' hiking on the Appalachian and Horseshoe Trails or Hanging around 50-100 feet cliffs at awesome look outs. With this program, I just want to put as much info to PARS and help out the state of PA's Herps.

    Very nice!

    I will definitely have to do that and get in touch with him. Well Scott If you are ever in the area, I'd like to go herpping some time. That also goes with you Jacob. I think that would be an excellent idea Jacob! I feel like there are a few isolated populations that are not being documented due to not enough evidence and how hard it is to find them in these areas. For example, I have heard a few reports of TR seen in Lancaster and Chester Counties but due to the vast landscape and not enough Snakes, it's like trying to find a needle in a hay stack.

    I agree Scott and thanks Jacob. I would like to have someone with authority of the website/state to go with me sometime so they can see for themselves that TR live in some areas of York County. This is the 2nd one I've seen. Do you gentleman think this is a Gravid female?

    yea, kinda shocked me when my dad brought it home. This coming year, I'm going to be trying to go Herpping more out towards Lebanon/ Lancaster Counties. I know a few spots that I came across over the years. Didn't really put that much time to search those areas, mostly hiked. Are you ever around that area????
