Snakes of Wisconsin featured at Havenwoods State Forest NatureFest

MILWAUKEE – People will have an opportunity to get up close and personal with many of the snakes that are native to Wisconsin during a “Snakes of Wisconsin,” presentation that is being held on Saturday, Oct. 11 from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Havenwoods State Forest in Milwaukee. At least 14 of the state’s 20 species will be featured at the free festival for families, youth organizations, and individuals.

Hands-on presentations will feature snakes such as the western fox, bullsnake, black rat and various garters. Wisconsin’s two species of rattlesnakes will be part of a look-but-don’t-touch-display.

Naturalists will be on hand to educate visitors about these Wisconsin natives and answer questions. Programs include guided hikes, programs about snakes and other reptiles and amphibians, crafts for kids, and hands-on nature activities. Children can win a snake poster by participating in several activities during the day. Snack foods will be available for purchase during the festival

Havenwoods is located in Milwaukee at 6141 N. Hopkins Street, telephone 527-0232. A vehicle admission sticker is not needed to visit Havenwoods State Forest and Environmental Awareness Center.
