Snakes! Learn more
By Moosetrack Megan


Montana State Parks (stateparks.mt.gov) will host a program called SNAKES! On Saturday, July 8.

 

Southwestern Montana’s slithery residents are sometimes viewed in a negative light by the two-legged humans that call the same area home. The cold-blooded friends are actually a vital part of the natural ecosystem that use sophisticated physical adaptations to help manage rodent problems and pose little threat to humans.

 

SNAKES! This program will include a demonstration with live snakes that will debunk some of the common misconceptions people usually have about the reptiles.

 

For more information call the park visitor center at (406) 287-3541.
