    This was very interesting and informative. I was a little annoyed that the presenter took so many questions from the kids in the middle of the presentation. It ended up going way over the scheduled time and I had to leave before all the snakes were brought out for display.

    A very informative presentation and lots of Q&A time. I think we all learned a lot! My grand kids thought it was awesome! And, it was really good to see some of the ladies again!!! Thanks, Rose, for posting!

    The Park opens at 8. Will it be good if we can get there at 8 and hike one hour and half before the snakes presentation?

    Yes, the program will last about an hour to and hour and a half. It is always very popular so come early if you want a seat! The program will start with a power point slide show about the snakes of our county, how to identify them, and a little about them. The second part of the program will be looking up close at some live snakes that we have here in the park. We have a couple friendly pet snakes who will also be available for handling as well.

    If we end up getting to town a couple days earlier than expected, we will be sure to change the RSVP on this. Would be good info to have as new residents!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
