Our mission is to expand and deepen public and personal knowledge of reptile natural history and conservation through education, outreach, and hands-on experience.
The University of Missouri Herpetological Society was started in 2007 by group of students and faculty interested in reptile husbandry, natural history, and conservation. UMHS stresses the importance of continuing education and broadening skill-sets while retaining a down to earth attitude.
Currently, UMHS holds monthly meetings that are open to the public. Due to University policy, only students/staff of the University of Missouri can become official members of UMHS. However, UMHS believes herpetology is for everyone to enjoy and encourages any interested person to attend our meetings and events.
