Event details

Celebrate World Snake Day! Did you know that snakes smell the air to hunt? And they unhinge their jaw to eat? Join us on this hike to learn basic facts about these incredible reptiles and find out which snakes call Will County home. Maybe we can find some northern water snakes or a small brown snake on the Island!

This walk is a companion to the Snakes of Will County Zoom program, but you don’t need to participate in the virtual program.
