“Snakes, being both predators and prey, play an important part in the balance of our ecosystem,” notes environmental educator Carl Heitmuller. Visitors are invited to get a close-up look at these reptiles’ amazing adaptations and learn how to identify snakes that live in the Hudson Valley. There will be live snakes as well as artifacts available for hands-on interaction.

Admission is $7 per adult and $5 per child (Nature Museum members receive a $2 discount per admission). For more information call 845-534-5506 x204 or visit hhnm.org. The program is presented in partnership with the Hudson Highlands Land Trust.
