Whitney: Snakes Alive!

March 22, 2014 - 10:00am to 3:00pm
Western Diamond-Backed Rattlesnake on the rocks

Whether your feelings are best described as “fear” or “revere,” co-existing with snakes is just part of living in central Texas. Come join us for a question and answer session with Dallas-Fort Worth Herpetological Society Education Director Mark Pyle. Take advantage of an opportunity to “meet” some live snakes in a safe environment. Meet at the playground between the boat ramp and the shelter area.

Families with children are encouraged to attend.
