Remarkable Reptiles

 

Wednesday, June 28 at 1:00 pm

 

A perennial favorite, local reptile expert Jim Gerholdt, will be back to visit with some of his friends.  And his friends are snakes, lizards and turtles!  Kids will learn about these fascinating creatures, and maybe even get to pet a boa constrictor!  All ages are welcome.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And you may want to stick around afterwards, because we’re making crafts at 2:00.
