Welcome to the
Cold Blooded Critters 4-H Herpetology Youth Club
Where Scales and Smiles Propel Youth Potential!

Hey there! Thanks for slithering onto our page! Does your 5-18-year-old have a wild love for scales and tails? Are they mesmerized by the slinky slither of a snake, the speedy scurry of a lizard, or the easygoing crawl of a tortoise? Maybe the NEED for that irresistibly cute gecko at the pet store has come up more times than you can count. Well, guess what? You've just stumbled upon the coolest 4-H club in town!

Our Mission:
Here at Cold Blooded Critters, we've hatched a mission hotter than a sunbathing lizard on a summer day. We noticed there are tons of kids out there with a passion for these often misunderstood critters. We thought, why not create a rad space for them to come together, share their love, and make friends? Our club, nestled in the heart of Washoe County, Nevada, is not just about scales and tails; we're about creating a community where kids can learn, grow, and showcase their love for these fabulous creatures, all while advancing the field of youth development.

What's in Store:
Joining Cold Blooded Critters is like embarking on a reptilian adventure with a bunch of new pals. We're all about fostering friendships, dishing out education on our scaly friends, and being a lively part of our community. We believe in not just being spectators but active players in the game of life, building skills that'll make your kid as cool as a chameleon changing colors.

Ready for the Fun?
If this sounds like the kind of shindig your kid would enjoy, then you're in luck! We'd be over the moon to have you at one of our monthly meetings or events. It's not just about learning; it's about having a blast while doing it! Click on the "Contact Us" tab, shoot us a note, or give us a holler. We're all ears, just like our scaly friends!

So, what are you waiting for? Dive into the world of Cold Blooded Critters, where the adventure is as endless as a snake's curiosity. Can't wait to see you and your 4-H critter enthusiast soon! 🦎🐍🌟
