Sawyer Free Library 'Build a Better World' Program - Snakes of New England and the World Presentation 7-22-2017
We had a really fun snake show at the Sawyer Free Children's Library in Gloucester for our Snakes of New England and the World Presentation. It was a full house with lots of enthusiam. We were given a lovely introduction by Christy Rosso, head of library programming, and a big advocate for children's programs in our community. You'll definitely want to see the 'Exquisite girls' photographs below. We view our younger audiences as wildlife protectors and environmentalists. You just never know how a snake or salamander might rub off!
We brought along about twenty five snakes and Rick started out with snakes from New England and worked his way around the world. He had some interesting things to note about the differences in snakes camouflage, habits, habitat, diet, and how they deliver their young. Don't forget that snakes are his favorite creatures on earth.
Thanks to our volunteers Colleen Anderson, Ann Byers, Mason and Karen Camille, Steve McCrory, and Keith Bertone for helping out with the show. Thanks to Christy Rosso (white sweater, green dress) for inviting us, putting out all the snake books, getting us a huge crowd and her welcoming introduction.
