Bring The Family For A Weekend Of Salamanders, Snakes, Frogs And Turtles
Watch an expert milk venom from a snake, see what creatures live under a piece of barn tin or search for the elusive green salamander during Herpetology Weekend at Natural Bridge State Resort Park May 7-8.
A series of nightly speakers will fascinate you with tales of salamanders, snakes, frogs and turtles. Field trips led by experts from sponsor organizations, including the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources, guarantee a good time in the hunt for reptiles and amphibians. These programs are great getaways for families and kids. Plan to get dirty - you may just find yourself splashing through a creek in search of critters.
The cost is just $10 for adults and $3 for youths ages 13-17. Kids 12 and under may enjoy the programs free.
Registration begins at 7 p.m. Friday, May 7, at the Natural Bridge Activity Center. Saturday programs begin at 9 a.m., with field trips departing from Hemlock Lodge at Natural Bridge State Resort Park, located off the Mountain Parkway on KY 11 in Powell County.
