The Kansas Herpetological Society
The KHS is a non-profit 501c3 organization founded in Lawrence, Kansas, in 1974, designed to encourage scholarship, research, and dissemination of scientific information through the facilities of the Society; to encourage conservation of wildlife in general and of the herpetofauna of Kansas in particular; and to achieve closer cooperation and understanding between herpetologists, so that they may work together in common cause. The KHS is not a herpetocultural organization, but encourages individuals to keep and maintain native Kansas herpetofauna for educational and research purposes.
