Don't forget!

The Maryland Amphibian and Reptile Atlas (MARA) is a 5-year atlas documenting amphibian and reptile distributions in Maryland.

January 2010 through December 2014

Statewide on a grid-based geographic scale using U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) 7.5-minute quadrangle maps equally divided into six blocks of approximately 10 square miles each.

Volunteers to conduct fieldwork and document the roughly 95 species and subspecies known to occur within the State.

The atlas will establish a baseline for future efforts and to promote conservation and protection of amphibians and reptiles by systematically documenting their distributions throughout the state.
