Sept. 27 program designed for children ages 5 and up
On Sunday, Sept. 27, at 2 p.m., the Hudson Highlands Nature Museum will host a program on snakes for adults and families with children ages 5 and older at Hubbard Lodge, 2880 Route 9, Cold Spring.
“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.
