The Fox Valley Herp Club (FVHC) was formed in Appleton, Wisconsin as a means for individuals with a common interest in reptiles to share information. Since the club formed in 1996, it has evolved its scope and purpose. The club now educates the general public on the responsible keeping of reptiles.  We also try to fight the legislative process that would ban reptiles from public ownership.  We would like to help in lessening public fears of reptiles and amphibians. 

The FVHC does several entertaining and educational talks throughout central Wisconsin for schools, scout groups, company picnics, charity fundraisers and much more. We do training sessions for police, fire departments and rescue organizations on how to handle and care for large snakes. We also rescue reptiles in need of care or a home.The Fox Valley Herp Club is a nonprofit organization that does not charge for the shows it performs, but donations are accepted and are used to promote our club events and our image.

For more information about FVHC shows for your organization or group, please contact us through the webmaster email address listed on the contacts page.  In many cases weather may be a restricting factor if shows are being done in the outdoors, however over the last few years the club has begun doing several shows through the winter for indoor events. In most cases shows can be tailored to accommodate your organization's time frame or specific needs. The FVHC has performed shows from Green Bay to Milwaukee. If you are outside this area you may still contact us to determine if a show in your area is possible, but please understand that our members provide their own transportation and location may also be a limiting factor.
