I live in northern Harford County, Maryland. Does anyone know what I can expect to find in the area or any good places to go herping? I do not know anyone else in my area who is interested in these things. I know of a few streams and wooded areas to hunt through but I can never seem to find anything beyond toads.

Your best bet is to pick up a local guide on herps. This will give you an idea of what kind of habitats you should be looking in to find your target species.

I live in Baltimore and have only gone herping a few times in Maryland. Honestly I've not had a tremendous amount of luck as far as caudates go. I've only found one Desmognathus fuscus up around Thurmont and a lot of Eurycea bislineata in the creeks north of the city. Western Maryland seems to have the most numbers and biodiversity, I'd start in the parks there.
