SC2013

May 17-19, 2013

The Snake Count is a citizen science program to map and track snake distributions across North America, started by the Center for Snake Conservation. Last spring’s count was so successful and fun, we decided to open up this year’s event to the public!

We’ll kick things off Friday evening with an informal viewing and discussion of some of SocialSnakes’ best videos of snake behavior in the wild. Saturday afternoon, when it’s too hot to count snakes, Dr. Erika Nowak will tell us all about relocating rattlesnakes.
