Searching for Snakes: A Garter Snake Interpretive Walk REDUX

Are they garter snakes, gardener snakes, or red racers?

What’s the difference? How many species are there?

And are rattlesnakes actually invading Western Washington?

All of these questions and more will be answered by Leonard Jones, a University of Washington graduate student studying the population genetics of garter snakes across the San Juan Archipelago.

Join Leonard on a walk through the Land Bank’s Hummel Lake Preserve, while he simultaneously looks for garters and explains what makes them (and other snakes) so special.

Children of all ages are welcome, clothes and shoes that can get a little dirty (in the event of post-rain mud) are preferred.

For more information contact Tanja Williamson at 360-378-4402 or email tanjaw@sjclandbank.org.
