Living with Snakes: How to Coexist with Our Friends in the Desert

Fun and informative presentation at the Southwest Environmental Center

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - The Southwest Environmental Center is pleased to present a special lecture and hands-on showcase from herpetologist Frank Bryce on Wednesday, April 10th at 7 pm about living with snakes. Mark your calendars for this educational, family-friendly event and discover more about our friends in the desert.

Drawing upon his decades of experience with venomous snakes, herpetologist Frank Bryce will talk about the reptiles that share the desert with us, how to identify the most common species of rattlesnakes, and what to do if you find one on your porch. He’ll bring in live specimens (in cages!) to help with identification, including a Gila monster that may be the oldest one in captivity. You won’t want to miss this fun, informative, and practical presentation!

The presentation is free and open to the public. The Southwest Environmental Center is located at 275 N. Main in downtown Las Cruces. For more information, call (575) 522-5552.
