Slither hither for Snake Day at Elachee
GAINESVILLE - Elachee Nature Science Center will host its annual Snake Day on Saturday, Sept. 8, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The center's most popular family event of the year, Snake Day has grown into a festival of "all things reptilian and fun," featuring live animals ranging from common garden snakes to Komodo dragons and huge tortoises. Also included are children’s crafts, face painting, and guided hikes to the special live animal presentations.
Visitors will be introduced to a wide variety of live native and exotic snakes and reptiles and learn from Elachee's expert exhibitors why these animals are "important to our world" and dispel some myths and fears about reptiles.
Admission is $5 for adults and children ages 2-12; member and children under 2 get in free.
Snake Day is sponsored by Tipton Construction Company. For more information, visit www.elachee.org or call Elachee Nature Science Center at 770/535-1976.
