Snakes are one of the most feared and misunderstood of all animals in the animal kingdom, and yet most people are fascinated by them. Snakes play a vital role in a healthy ecosystem, but unfortunately many are killed simply because they are a snake. The goal of this seminar is to promote the conservation of important fauna by educating people about which snakes can be dangerous and which ones in our area are harmless.

Lunch and Learn: Snakes of the North Carolina Piedmont
12pm - May 17h, 2016 – Raleigh

Snakes are one of the most feared and misunderstood of all animals in the animal kingdom, and yet most people are fascinated by them.  Snakes play a vital role in a healthy ecosystem, but unfortunately many are killed simply because they are a snake, and not because they pose a danger.  The goal of this seminar is to promote the conservation of important fauna by educating people about which snakes can be dangerous and which ones in our area are harmless.  We will discuss the most common snakes a Piedmont resident may encounter, how to identify them, and what to do if one is found in an area that is unacceptable.  Attendees will have the opportunity to conquer their fears by observing and even touching (if they choose) a live, non-venomous snake.

Attendees will:
1. Learn an be able to describe the difference between the terms "venomous" and "poisonous.
2. Be able to use knowledge and tools presented to better serve their communities, in particular those with multicultural populations.
3. Learn how to use existing resources and programs to create successful partnerships that benefit their communities.
