Hello Delaware Valley Herp fans! The summer break is over, and the Delaware Valley Herpetological Society is kicking back into action with a public meeting on September 25th at 8pm.

The speaker will be our own Scott McWilliams, or rather Scott McWilliams, MD. I might have mentioned on this blog that Scott's a doctor, specifically an emergency medicine specialist. He will be speaking about venomous snake bite, so this will be a great opportunity to learn more about the natural history of venom, the public health aspects of bites (who gets bitten by what, how often, and why), and of course the best ways to treat venomous snake bite.

We'll be back in Marple for this meeting. See below for the details:

Marple Township Building, Springfield and Sproul Roads

From the East or West: PA Rte 3 (West Chester Pike) to PA 320 (Sproul Road), South to the "T". Enter parking lot just past police station or turn left on Sproul and take your next left to get to the other parking lot (on the right).

From the North or South: Either take I-476 (Blue Route) to Exit 9 (Broomall) and go west on PA Rte 3, then south on PA rte 320 or take PA Rte 320 from wherever you are.

There is a parking lot around the Township/Library Building and one just to the east of the building. Street parking is possible on Sproul Road from the Police Station north.

Refreshments will be served. While there is no admission charge, there will be a voluntary collection to cover the speaker's fee and other expenses.
