Join Dr. John Herman an instructor at FGCU for a fun filled hike at Bird Rookery Swamp. This hike is a part of our Strolling Science Seminar series, scholarly hikes for adults. On this strolling expedition you will learn how to safely observe and share outdoor areas with snakes, as well as their importance to the ecosystem.
Any ecosystem, including CREW, can only truly be healthy if all of its parts are filling their roles. We can’t pick and choose which parts to protect based on if we find them “cute” or “cuddly”. This seminar’s purpose is to bring snakes out from the shadows of fear and into the light of respect and protection.
What to wear/bring: Wear comfortable outdoor walking clothes and closed-toed shoes. Please bring some water to drink and to use to rinse hands. Also please avoid putting sunscreen, lotion, hand sanitizer, or any other chemical on the palms of your hands during this session.
