Making snakes and other creatures less intimidating through education is one of the goals of a yearly Remington Nature Center event.
This will be the eighth year of the Herp-O-Rama event. Naturalist Shelly Cox said the event began when staff saw a need for more education about herpetology in the area.
“We got together and decided to plan a fun event that’s designed to be educational, but not intimidating, we want people to learn, but not be afraid,” Cox said.
The Herp-O-Rama event takes place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Remington Nature Center and includes live snakes, turtles and salamanders, a scavenger hunt, crafts and more.
