Chippewa Nature Center’s Michelle Fournier will be teaching about these legless and scaly reptiles. Participants will learn how to identify some of Michigan’s common snakes, where they’re found, how they eat, the benefits they bring to your garden and other fun snake facts. Learn how you can make your garden more snake-friendly or, if snakes still aren’t your thing, ways to keep snakes in nature and respect their amazing qualities from a distance. They may be the most feared and misunderstood animals, but after attending this program you’ll see how fascinating and beneficial snakes can be. Live Michigan snakes will be on hand to give visitors a chance to see these animals up close! Preregistration is not required, but appreciated. This event is sponsored by the Northern Gateway Master Gardener Association (NGMGA) in cooperation with MSU Extension-Clare County. In an effort to continue to offer future programs to the public, NGMGA requests a $5.00 per person donation for guests.
