Summer Campers get Snakey

In the Environmental Nature Center’s After Camp today, Campers were introduced to the world of snakes and their relationship with the environment. They started off with a brief hike to explore.  Shortly after hiking, the campers found themselves drawing and coloring snakes made of paper plates. After carefully cutting them out, the campers took pictures posed with their snake, and then hung them on nearby trees to startle unsuspecting hikers.  Once the campers cleaned up and hiked back to camp, Camp Teacher Katie brought them into the museum and read the story of Verdi the snake. After story time, the campers were eager to see a live snake like the one they just heard about. Instead of a yellow snake, Katie pulled out a giant Kingsnake! The campers sat in a circle as the Kingsnake was showed off and got a chance to pet the snake’s belly with two fingers. – Will Rogers, ENC Intern
