–Join Cal Poly biologist and reptile specialist Tony Frazier as he tours the Elfin Forest in search of the Elfin Forest’s reptilian residents on Aug. 19 starting at 9:30 a.m. He’ll be sure to find some Western Fence Lizards sunning themselves on the boardwalk rails. Most of the forest’s reptiles and amphibians are hard to find, so Frazier will bring reptile skins and perhaps a live critter or two. Learn how these elfin creatures behave, survive, and protect themselves from predators.
