MDC Hosting Snake Program in St. Joseph

Snakes are quite common in towns and the country, yet often unfairly feared.

The Missouri Department of Conservation will offer a free program about Missouri snakes from 6 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, August 26, at the Krug Park Castle in Saint Joseph.

Missouri has 49 species or sub-species of snakes.

Most are harmless to people and helpful in controlling pests such as rodents.

This program will focus on snakes common to the northwest region.

Registration is required.
