Join Stewards of the Coyote Valley (SCV) and the Mojave Desert Land Trust (MDLT) to learn more about the snakes that inhabit our Copper Mountain Mesa area.
Here’s what will be going on…
* Joshua Tree residents and snake enthusiasts Rhonda Lynn Hayes and Jane “Spider” Fawke will discuss
–How to easily identify common snakes by species
–How do snakes survive in our climate? What role do they play in desert ecology? What kind of habitat do they prefer? What do they eat? In short: What do snakes do out here, and what do they want?
–How we can live harmoniously with snakes
–Re-locating snakes — when to do it, and how to do it
BONUS: Spider will have her California King, Mountain King and Gopher snakes on hand for you to meet!
* Anthropologist Dr. Adam Henne will discuss “Snakes and Serpents in Myth and Culture”
* Learn about “snake aversion” training for dogs
And that’s not all — we’ll be announcing more “SNAKES!!!” guests in coming days.
Refreshments will be available.
