Animal exhibit to come to Serpent Mound

Ohio’s largest live reptile and amphibian display will be held at Serpent Mound on June, 27. “Return of the Snakes”, which will be held under tents, will take place rain or shine.

The event will include lectures from some of Ohio’s top reptile and amphibian experts – including Amphibian and Reptile Conservation Coordinator at The Ohio State University Greg Lipps, Naturalist from Shawnee State Park Jenny Richards and Naturalist at the Ross County Park District and Herpetology Researcher Joe Letsche.

The event runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with no admission charge and an $8 parking fee.

Visitors may view numerous live reptiles on display and touch docile snakes held in the hands of expert educators while the lectures will be done back-to-back all day. Content of the lectures will vary from those aimed at children all the way up to serious nature enthusiasts.

Reptile and amphibian themed activities for children will also be ongoing, including toad feeding stations, turtle classes at the turtle pool, children’s games, face painting and crafts.
