Snakes and Frogs
On August 23 at 10 a.m., a program designed for families, ‘Snakes & Frogs’ is an introduction to local amphibians and reptiles — animals that are both fascinating and elusive. More than 30 different frogs, salamanders, turtles and snakes inhabit Berkshire County, and we know little, if anything, about many of them. Professor Tom Tyning will encourage families to get to know these animals, from tadpoles and turtles, to salamanders and snakes. A small collection of local live animals will be available for close examination. Tyning is Professor of Environmental Science at Berkshire Community College, specializing in reptiles and amphibians. He actively researches local rattlesnake populations.
This event takes place in the Education Center. Berkshire Botanical Garden is located at 5 West Stockbridge Road in Stockbridge, Mass. For more information, call 413-298-3926 or visit berkshirebotanical.org.
