Lake Katherine
In every walk with Nature one receives far more than he seeks.

Reptiles & Amphibians

Despite their poor reputation, reptiles and amphibians are quite fascinating creatures. Lake Katherine is home to a wide variety of these creatures, from snakes to frogs to salamanders. Many make their home in wetland habitats: in vernal pools and in or beside the lake.
