Lizard Field School


Student biologists learn the how-to’s of  wildlife research by studying the life and death of lizards in Oregon’s Alvord desert. For 15 years Dr. Roger Anderson has been leading students on a three-week immersion into lizard ecology and behavior. Students cope with the primitive conditions of life in a desert encampment while enduring the blazing sun and harsh desert conditions that make life difficult for humans yet ideal for lizards, snakes and scorpions. Why is the Alvord desert home to the densest concentration of these lizards in the West? Lizard field school is the place to find out.
