You can enjoy an informative and entertaining talk about Pennsylvania Timber Rattlesnakes at Audubon Community Nature Center’s First Friday Lunch Bunch on December 1, 2017, at 11 a.m.
Presenter Rick Rupprecht spent his career as a math teacher at Jamestown Community College, but he has spent his entire life enjoying the outdoors in many ways.
Rupprecht has been curious about timber rattlesnakes since his early 20s when he had a personal experience with one. This past July he accompanied his brother and nephew on a Pennsylvania Rattlesnake Hunt when most of the pictures and all of the videos for his presentation were taken.
The well-researched talk will cover many aspects of the rattlesnake including reproduction, denning habits, the difference between venomous and poisonous, how to determine the sex of a snake, and more.
A BYO brown bag lunch and conversation follows the program, with coffee and tea provided.
The fee for attending is $8 or $6 for Nature Center Members. Registration can be completed online on the Programs page at auduboncnc.org. Walk-ins are welcome.
