February 8 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Snakes are commonly feared and misunderstood, leading to many misconceptions about these creatures. However, with a little bit of knowledge, you can begin to see how truly amazing these animals are and learn how to interact with them safely. Join us this month as we discuss the various snake species found in our area, their behaviors, myths and misconceptions about venomous snakes, and even a meet and greet with a live snake!

Our guest speaker is Grover Barfield, Director of the Carolinas Reptile Rescue and Education Center (CRREC), a non-profit organization dedicated to educating the public about the need to conserve the reptiles of North Carolina. CRREC rescues, rehabilitates, and releases nuisance and injured reptiles mainly in Gaston, NC, and surrounding counties. Since 2003, CRREC has provided educational programs on snakes of the Carolinas to schools, civic organizations, Scout troops, museums, local parks, state parks, and other government and non-government organizations and agencies.
