Tuesday, April 19 at 7pm EDT on Zoom – As spring approaches we look forward to getting back outside. Understanding what we may encounter outside helps us be safe and prepared. Snakes are often misunderstood so join us to learn about our 32 species of snakes in Tennessee including the 4 venomous species, where they live, what they eat, and how to identify them.  There will be no live animals but plenty of photos to learn about these fascinating animals.

Our presenter is Don Hazel. Don has always had an interest in nature. He writes a twice monthly nature column for the Glade Sun and Crossville Chronicle Newspapers. Don is the President of the Tennessee Bluebird Society,  a member of the Friends of the Trails organization, and President of the Fairfield Glade Fly Fishing Club.

Don and his wife Nancy are retired and have lived in Fairfield Glade, near Crossville Tennessee for 16 years. Previously he lived in five other states while working for large corporations.

This program will be recorded and the recording sent to all who register. Closed captions will be available. For questions or issues with your registration please contact UT Arboretum Education Coordinator, Michelle Campanis – [email protected]
