(ages 5 and up / 45 min) Get up close and personal with some amazing local reptiles. Learn about reptile behavior, habitat, preservation and safety with a trained volunteer from the Phoenix Herpetological Society. The "Desert Wildlife & Safety program gives kids the opportunity to learn about rattlesnakes, Gila monsters, gopher snakes, and desert tortoises in the safety and comfort of the library! This demonstration will let kids know what to do if they ever see or hear a rattlesnake in the wild, why Gila monsters are such amazing animals, why desert tortoises are protected animals, and how to tell if a snake is venomous or non-venomous.
Please see a staff person prior to the start of the program to receive a number which will be your child’s registration.
