Have you ever found a snake and wondered what it was, what it’s doing, or whether or not you should worry? Join us for this introductory class and learn which snakes are found in Maryland, how they live their lives, and how to separate snake fact from snake fiction. We will touch on a range of topics, including snake identification, biology, and behavior. This is a perfect class for nature-lovers and beginner naturalists looking to learn more about our slithery neighbors.

Jane Marlow is an animal behaviorist and nature educator with over a decade of experience in environmental interpretation and animal behavior management at institutions such as the Maryland Zoo, the National Aquarium, and Baltimore County Recreation and Parks. She is a certified animal trainer (CPAT-KA, CPBT-KA) and works as a private animal behavior consultant and naturalist at Marshy Point Nature Center while she pursues her Masters in animal behavior analysis. Jane is also on the board of directors for the Susquehannock Wildlife Society as their Animal Care and Behavior Specialist.

The Natural History Society of Maryland is a volunteer-led non-profit organization, so the fee you pay will go directly to support the programs, the nature collections, and the building that make this kind of nature education possible.

Thank you for your support!
