In order to change how people view and treat snakes, we give in-person presentations on snake behavior and conservation in southwestern New Mexico. NEW: these presentations are now available online too — so we can present to your group, where ever you are.
For adults, we give a multimedia presentation that runs 30-45 minutes with a question and answer session following the presentation (approximately one hour total). Our presentations for children are a little more informal (see below). We may also bring educational literature, stickers, eco-friendly fundraising items, and live snakes.
The Snake Country Survival Guide
This presentation 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 manage backyard snakes, based on the latest research and our own observations of wild snake behavior. We’ll also show some cool videos of things you might see snakes doing in your yard. Not to be missed for anyone that lives, works, or plays in snake country.
A Tale of Two Trash Snakes
What can we learn from two snakes, in only one week, without capturing them? When a Rock Rattlesnake (Crotalus lepidus) showed up at ASP headquarters we put the techniques and technologies we’ve recommended over the years to the test and were rewarded with more than we could have hoped for. And luckily for everyone else, we filmed and photographed the whole story, which is shared in this presentation.
