Living With Snakes

This presentation for Friends of City of Rocks will answer the most common question we get: What do I do about snakes in my yard? We’ll discuss our recommendations for how to coexist with snakes, based on the latest research and our own observations of wild snake behavior, and show videos of cool things you might get to see in your yard. Not to be missed for anyone that lives, works, or plays in snake country.
