Outdoors Learn about snakes at Highlands Nature Center

Approximately 15 species of snakes live in the region, only two of which are venomous; still, many harmless snakes are needlessly killed each year.

On Thursday, July 14, at 6 pm, a program titled “Snakes of Highlands” is planned at the Highlands Nature Center.

The presentation, given by Patrick Brannon, Director of the Nature Center, will discuss the biology and natural history of snakes, instruct visitors on the identification of the local species, and dispel many common misconceptions about them.

Visitors will even have the opportunity to see and touch live snakes.

This program is free and open to all ages, but seating is limited.

For additional information, call the Nature Center at (828)526-2623 or visit www.wcu.edu/hbs/Naturecenter.html.
