Department of Natural Resources
The Michigan DNR has partnered with Herpetological Resource and Management, LLC to create and administer an inclusive database of reptile and amphibian sightings in Michigan. This project has become commonly known as the Michigan Herp Atlas and is currently in the fifth year of development. While not required, you are encouraged as a Michigan Scientific Collector's Permit holder working with herp species to aid in this effort by visiting the project website and providing locations (Lat and Long or Township/Range/Section) of any reptiles or amphibians you encounter while in the field. The Michigan Herp Atlas website is https://www.miherpatlas.org/. Observational reports can be made online through the atlas website or by contacting Lori Sargent (SargentL@michigan.gov) or David Mifsud (DMifsud@HerpRman.com). Reports of all species are welcome!
