Rendezvous with rattlers

Written by 

An up-close encounter with a captive rattlesnake and hike through rattler habitat will be offered 2-3:30 p.m. Saturday, April 29, during the Radical Rattlers program at Balsam Mountain Trust, located within the Balsam Mountain Preserve. 

One of the region’s most misunderstood creatures, timber rattlesnakes play a critical role in mountain ecosystems. Program participants will get to meet the Balsam Mountain Trust’s resident rattler, learn about the species’ natural history — including what to do when encountering one — and take a quick hike to identify rattlesnake habitat. 

$5 suggested donation with reservations required by April 27. RSVP online at www.balsammountaintrust.org or call Jen Knight, 828.631.1061.
