Rock Eagle program will focus on reptiles and amphibians

Have you ever wondered where turtles go in the winter or why salamanders have slimy skin? Rock Eagle’s next Saturday at the Rock program, Snakes, Turtles and More, will answer all of these questions.

Set for March 16, the program will focus on Georgia’s native reptiles and amphibians. Participants will learn about these fascinating animals and the important role they play in our ecosystem. Visitors will also be allowed to touch or hold some of the live creatures.

Sessions are appropriate for all ages and cost $5 per person. The program runs from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Advanced registration is required.

For more information, call Matt Hammons at (706) 484-2862 or email him at mhammons@uga.edu. Saturday at the Rock programs take place the third Saturday of each month, excluding December. A complete list of sessions may be found online at www.rockeagle4h.org/ee/community/SaturdayattheRock.html.
