Junior Naturalists for Families at Sam’s Point: Snakes of Sam's Point

Thursday, August 8, 2024 09:30 AM - 12:00 PM

Come learn about the wonderful world of snakes with Colleen Stevens, Student Conservation Association/AmeriCorps Environmental Education Intern. The program will start off at the Sam's Point Visitor Center with a lesson on the different species of snakes that live in our area. We will discuss typical snake habitat, venomous species and much more. After the lesson, we will hike out on Loop Road with high hopes of experiencing snakes in their natural habitat! This three-mile hike is mildly challenging, with some steep sections. Plan to bring food and lots of water and we'll have lunch on the trail. This program is recommended for families of all ages who are capable of hiking this distance and terrain. Meet at the Sam's Point Visitor Center. Pre-registration is required by calling the Sam's Point Visitor Center at 845-647-7989.
