Default Philadelphia Dendro Group...

Hey

I have been raising darts for the past year here in Philadelphia, and am a environmental studies major at Temple. Browsing through the member list I see there are a good amount of people in the Philadelphia area that are into dart frogs. I think it would be a great oppurtunity if we could get together to trade ideas, information, frogs, and supplies. The oppurtunity to network face to face is a invaluable one.
So if anyone in the Philadelpiha area is interested please respond here or shoot me an email. Let me know what times work best for you and we can pick a place to meet up.

Thank You
Jacob

I"m in Lancaster. If your interested we have the Lancaster herp society every 3rd Friday of the month at the north museum at 7:00pm... that's this Friday (19th) we talk about every kind of herp, but i think this month is on frogs... its a great way to meet new herpers and i'm sure there will be some other guys with pdf's there, my self included (well i will be getting my first ones quite soon)

Hope to see ya there,

~Samuel

Assuming no traffic, I'm about 2 to 2.5 hours from Philly and would love to attend a meeting if one is organized.

Weekends work best for me.

I have to check the calendar at work but I have at least two weekends tied up in Nov already. The weekend of the 15th and the weekend of the 10th. However the Friday after Thanksgiving maybe an option.

So it sounds like later in November is good for everyone. We could meet at my house although space is semi limited. Maybe we can think of a neutral spot, it really doesnt matter to me. We although need to think of what we will discuss(ie. members frogs, problems, what we would like for our collections, conservation efforts we could participate in, and just getting to know each other). Any input is greatly appreciated!

Someone's house is where I'm used to having these types of meetings at. Preferably someone with a few tanks that we can stare at while we talk . I should have some plant cuttings I can bring when the time comes. Trading plants, feeders, and frogs, is usually what goes down then we talk about anything that's on our minds..

Haha, well my tanks are in the basement. I would be willingly to move them up in the living room while we meet so we can watch them. It would be kool if people bought some frogs along, although that is just a thought! I would like to keep it in philly, but am not necessarily opposed to meeting in south jersey. This sounds exciting, so lets keep the ideas going and make this happen.
On a side note too, it would be really great to discuss habitat preservation and how we can contribute to that cause. It is of course imperative that we maintain the original homes where our darts have come from!

It would also be great to discuss efforts in maintaining genetic diversity in captive populations, and if we would be fortunate enough to have Ed attend as well, perhaps we can shed more light on the ASN and TWI's efforts.. including operation frog pond if you want to talk about contributing to habitat preservation on a local basis..

I would be more than happy to talk about TWI. I can even bring my laptop along so we can watch the slide show...

There are a couple of important parts to TWI and OFP is definetly one of them. The pond in our yard was colonized the first year and along with the younger bull frogs, there was a wood frog near it today.

In the future if we want some more formal discussions I can also bring the power point for spindly leg, Amphibian Nutrition and Caecilians...

Ed

This all sounds great. Ed that sounds great, I would be paticulary interested in those efforts being a environmental studies major at Temple. If we do a slideshow we might want to consider a bigger spot. Like I said we can do it at my place but space might be limited to 8- 10 at the most(center city rowhome) so our width is smaller than most, but whatever works.

Did someone say Sock Puppets? All the power points sound great.. the nutrition one was especially informative, I think others would like it as well..

Well I guess all that's left is we decide on South Jersey vs Philly, and a date for late November?

I can bring snacks and refreshments. It would also be great if everyone could post any frogs, plants, or supplies they might have available for sale/trade.

I've only just started culturing a few of these so not sure what I will have, but these are some feeders I've been working with (in order of availability):

D. melanogaster 'turkish gliders'
D. melanogaster 'golden delicious'
D. melanogaster 'mini white'
Pea aphids
Silver springtails
Tropical & temperate white springtails
Blue springtails
Dwarf striped woodlice
Pygmy red woodlice

Looking for dwarf white woodlice, any other springtail or isopod that I don't have, and any plants I don't have..

Well at the moment it seems like we have less than 10 people.. (maybe some of the Maryland crew would want to make the trip) 15-20 minutes outside of philly in Jersey is a pretty easy commute as there are a variety of routes to take.

While im not trying to push it.... my house is definately available... the only downside is that I dont have my frogs there (they are at my apt in philly... i go home on the weekends and i have to trust my roommates to care for them, but they do a good job haha)

anyway, while I'm definately still a noob at all this (been like 2 months ) but I definately like the idea of the powerpoints and all that jazz, and I have a theater with a projector and all to display if we want. and theres plenty of space to bring whatever and whoever you want to.

I'm located in Mantua NJ, just a couple mins off rt 295 or rt 55

Well I think ideally it would be great to have it one of your houses. Preferablly it would be good to have frogs to look at. But whatever works for most people is godd for me!
On a seperate note where in Philly is you r apartment carola? I would love to stop by and see your frogs, and as always your welcome to stop by and check mine out!

Depending on the location and day of the meeting, I would love to make it down to a Philly meeting.

A meeting at Ed's would be exceptionally convenient :lol:

While it would be convient for some, the house is not in a state where we can really have people over as we are doing some renovations..

Sorry Oz...

Just wanted to toss this out here, The Lancaster Herp society is having its members night this month (the 16th)
So everyone just brings there own herps and its more of a stand around and talk night, not a speaker coming in to talk. So you all could come up there and bring along what ever you have to trade with each other... And then if we want we could set up a date and time for a frog only day somewhere...

Hello, I would like to get in on this as well. I live about 20 miles east of philly. My house would actually work for meetings eventually. It isn't ready yet (still getting everything situated from the move but plenty big enough (its actually a historic mansion built in 1805)) and i dont have any frogs yet (i will be setting up either a 65 hex or 55g standard in the living room soon + and insanely big prebuilt viv that is about 150g from the mesurements i have gotten) but i am still new to this and just dont consider myself quite ready to actually have frogs. especially in such a big viv.

Always looking for a chance to network with fellow froggers. I'm located in Frederick MD and have hosted the MidAtlanticDendro club a few times at my place; a weekend meeting up north might be in my cards.

Looks like we're still waiting for someone to volunteer their household as a meeting spot, and we can go with a date once that person steps up to the stand

Ok so far three (including myself) I think we could manage that in my closet lol. The woman is cool with it as long as it isn't like 50 people. Although if we get to many some might have to bring like folding chairs or something if they wish to sit. I can handle seating for 10-15.
