Motif No. 1 Day Festival - Snakes and Vernal Pond Exhibit 5-20-2017
It was a cool and comfortable sunny day at Motif No. 1 Day Festival in Rockport. We featured our Snakes and Vernal Pond Exhibit to a whole bunch of interested and excited people. Our outdoor booth in the beautiful grassy center of town was a hit. We spent our time out in the crowd mingling, with the snakes slung around us, for people to see and hold. We brought some other fun vernal pond critters too including a snapper, stuffed Ottie the Otter (for some reason the crowd really adores him), a Gray tree frog, baby Spotted salamanders, and Spring peepers. Our steadfast volunteers came through once again including Keith Bertone, Cora Hawks, Eric Hutchins, Julie McMahon, Jon and Diane Bevins, Wilhelmina Rolf Thaemert, Victoria Rolf, Colleen Anderson, and Rick. Once again we had an enjoyable day teaching our visitors about vernal pond wildlife and how to appreciate and hold our snakes.
