Last night, I spent three hours in a classroom listening to an intense herpetology lecture conducted by Rodger Sanderson from the Heard Museum in McKinney. I am studying to get my Master Naturalist certification and part of our lesson last night involved passing various snakes around the room. I was happy to learn that “snakes are stupid”.
If you like to learn about nature, or have kids home on break who need an activity, the Trinity River Audubon Center is full of opportunities. Tomorrow, they offer “Myths and Misunderstandings,” a program presented by the Dallas-Fort Worth Herpetological Society. The education director, Mark Pyle, will bring some live reptiles and amphibians that live in Dallas County. I believe they start around 6:30PM. Go early for the Chimney Swift Tower dedication at 6:15 pm. It’s all free. All day, every Thursday. (photo of my ex-husband courtesy of TRAC website.)
