The Hudson Highlands Nature Museum will hold a “Snakes Alive” program Aug. 3, for adults and children ages 5 and older, with two sessions, 10 and 11:30 a.m., at the museum’s Outdoor Discovery Center in Cornwall.
Meet their live resident snakes and explore the incredible world of amazing reptiles. Using an illustrated presentation, educators will introduce the most commonly encountered local snakes and teach participants how to identify them. Do snakes really hiss? Can they climb trees? Where do snakes go in the winter? Learn answers to these and many other fascinating questions about simply sensational snakes. Children will also make a fun snake craft to take home.
Admission is $7 for adults and $5 for children while museum member rates are $5 for adults, $3 for children. The Outdoor Discovery Center is located at 100 Muser Drive, Cornwall, across from 174 Angola Road. See hhnaturemuseum.org or call 845-534-5506.
