DAVENPORT, IOWA (June 7, 2022) — The Davenport Public Library will host Nahant Marsh for a presentation on snakes on June 13, Fairmount, 10AM.

Many people have a fear of snakes. Learning about how snakes live can help people feel more comfortable with these scaly creatures. Staff from the Nahant Marsh Education Center will bring live snakes and participants will learn about their adaptations, diets, and habitats. This program is suitable for all ages.

This program will be held in the Children’s Garden weather-permitting. In the case of inclement weather, we’ll move to the Children's Area.

This program is subject to COVID-19 safety protocol updates. Check back here or our Facebook page for updates.
