Saturday at Rock Eagle events kick off

By Sharon Dowdy

Rock Eagle 4-H Center will kick off the Saturday at the Rock series on Feb. 19 with Herpetology: the Study of Reptiles and Amphibians.

Participants will learn to identify common local reptiles, dispel myths and perhaps touch a turtle or a snake. The program starts at 9:30 a.m. and ends at 11:30 a.m.

Sessions are appropriate for all ages and cost $5 per person. Each session includes the day’s scheduled program and an opportunity to visit Rock Eagle’s Natural History Museum. Advanced registration is required.

Saturday at the Rock programs are set for the third Saturday of each month, excluding December.
