Snake Supervisor Training
July 15 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Snakes are super pest-control agents, who are often misunderstood. Snakes have very poor eyesight, smell through their tongues and sense presence through vibrations- and as they are only 2 inches high at best, their only tactic to stay alive is to put on a good show. Most snakes in The Land Between bioregion (Ontario’s Highlands) are non-venomous, and for the one that is found on the Georgian Bay Coast, a person really needs to harass or almost step on the snake for it to strike. In fact, all snakes are actually quite shy, preferring to bask under rocks and away from disturbance. What is also cool is that snakes are clean- their scales cannot carry bacteria. Instead snakes control rodent populations helping to keep sources of bacteria away from humans.
This workshop and volunteer effort is a chance to overcome your fears of snakes (if you have them) and learn how to identify and monitor our scaled sentinels in vital habitats or on your own property.
