Learn About Florida Snakes

Venomous Florida snakes can be deadly, and learning more about snakes will indeed save lives... theirs, and possibly yours.

Are you ready to learn more about Florida’s snakes?

On April 20, 2016, from 10:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m., Master Gardener Volunteer Karl Shaffer will conduct a session on snakes.

These elongated, legless reptiles are much more frightening to most than a simple legless lizard, and strike fear in the hearts of many a Florida resident. But, fear not! In this class you will learn how to identify poisonous and non-poisonous snakes, the advantages of having certain snakes in your landscape and how to avoid being bitten by snakes.

Most snakes are non-venomous, but those that are don’t really “strike” for self-defense, usually they attack if you look like a tasty meal! Venom can be deadly, and learning more about snakes will indeed save lives… theirs, and possibly yours.

The class will take place at the Yulee Extension office on Pages Dairy Road. It is free and open to the public. For more information, access their website, or call the Extension office at (904) 530-6350.
