The four species of snakes that make their home at Writing-on-Stone will be the topic at our public presentation: the bullsnake, Alberta's only constrictor; two species of garter snakes; and rattlesnakes, which are considered the province's only venomous snake. These four snake species make up a significant number of Writing-On-Stone's reptile population. Join Naturalist Ken Moore to learn many of the interesting and fascinating facts about these species.

The University of Lethbridge’s unique coulee location puts us right in the heart of things and we often enjoy wildlife on campus. One coulee dweller who might concern us is the rattlesnake. Rattlesnakes are out and about, and the Friends of the Helen Schuler Nature Centre Society will offer a session filled with excellent information about our slithering neighbours, as well as give tips and tricks for co-existing in peace. Bring your lunch and join us for this session!
