Making Friends with Snakes, featuring naturalist Lydia Robertson

Come join Miss Lydia for a fun midsummer chat about sssssssssnakes! We’ll sit under the beautiful trees and learn about why our slithery friends are important to the ecosystem and how we can be part of helping protect them from harm. Then, just to show our snake friends how much we like them, we’ll do a snake-themed craft that can be taken home later!

If you’d like to learn more about Indiana’s snake population before the program, Indiana’s Department of Natural Resources has some great learning materials just for kids:

Please bring a snack and a refillable water bottle, and don’t forget sunscreen and bugspray. Children should dress for the weather, as this is a fully outdoor program that will take place rain or shine and only be rescheduled in the event of extreme inclement weather. Please monitor your email the day before in the event we need to reschedule. Parents are welcome to stay, or can drop off and pick up later. All participants must have a waiver signed onsite by an adult. Origin Park is for everyone. Please let us know if your child needs any kind of accommodation for mobility, sensory, or any other issues, and we will do our absolute best. Sssssservice animals are welcome, but pets are otherwise asked to please stay home so they don’t ssssssscare the snakes.
