Event details

Spring is a booming time of year! Dust off the snow and join a naturalist to learn all about our slithering friends – snakes! Find a basking spot in the nature center and get comfortable as you enjoy this animal program. Snakes get a bad rap, so here’s a chance to get up close and personal with our slithery, scaly friends. We may have the pleasure of being joined by a few special guests!
