Snakes of Alberta - Why Everyone Should Love Snakes

 

Thursday, November 23, 2017, 7:00 – 8:00 pm

 

Presented by Sandi Robertson, Wildlife Biologist Alberta Environment and Parks

 

You may have seen red-sided or wandering garter snakes here in Fish Creek Provincial Park, sun bathing on the pathway, or heard them rustling through the underbrush, but did you know that four other snake species live in this province? Alberta’s other snake species include the bullsnake, the western hog-nosed snake, the plains garter snake and the iconic prairie rattlesnake. The protected snake hibernaculaum at Shannon Terrace provides a place for snakes to breed and live throughout the winter. Although many people dislike snakes and are scared of them, only one species in Alberta has venom that is poisonous to humans, the prairie rattler. Join Sandi Robertson, wildlife Biologist Alberta Environment and Parks, on November 23 to learn about this province’s fascinating snakes, where in the province these snakes live, which ones are at risk and why everyone should love snakes. Sandi focuses on snake Species at Risk and she monitors snake populations and implements recovery actions.


Free to Friends members and $5 for non-members.
