Rattlerssss: From Fear to Fascination

Kansas Wetlands Education Center, 592 NE K-156 Highway, Great Bend, KS

Is that a rattlesnake that I just heard?  While many snakes are getting ready to hibernate for the winter, come to the Kansas Wetlands Education Center on Sunday, November 11 at 2:00pm for your chance to see some of these most feared animals.  Curtis Schmidt, Collections Manager from the Sternberg Museum of Natural History, will be on hand to present a program based on the current exhibit being shown at the Sternberg Museum of Natural History in Hays, KS, “Rattlerssss:  From Fear to Fascination.”

Schmidt will talk about the 22 species of rattlesnakes that can be found in the United States, all of which are live on display at the Sternberg through the winter.  Schmidt will have several of the live rattlesnakes to show during the program.  This program is free of charge.

Some people love them, some people fear them, but all will want to see this program as a precursor to your trip to see the full exhibit at the Sternberg this Fall.   For more information about this program contact the KWEC at 877-243-9268.

 Operating as a branch of Fort Hays State University’s Sternberg Museum of Natural History, the KWEC is located 10 miles northeast of Great Bend, KS along K-156 Highway and serves as a gateway to the 41,000-acre Cheyenne Bottoms wetlands area.
