“Snakes Alive”
This presentation is in the Azalea Room located inside Twin Falls Lodge It is a free educational program offered to guests and the general public. Snakes alive is a GREAT and safe program for all ages given by Jim Fregonara, a biologist with WVDNR. During this program you will learn about the importance that these slithering friends have on our ecosystem and why they are such an awesome species. You will learn about their habitat, what the eat, and yes how to identify venomous from non-venomous, because you will actually be up close “if you want to be” to these snakes. You will meet some snake species that call WV home such as the Black rat snake, Corn snake, Milk snake, Garter snake and the only two venomous species found in WV the Northern Copperhead and the Timber Rattlesnake. It truly is a program you do not want to miss!
