By Jessica Kallay

Have you ever wondered where turtles go in the winter or why salamanders have slimy skin?

Focusing on species native to Georgia, this Scaly Slimy Saturday at the Rock experience is sure to answer all of your questions. Cool off this summer with our cold blooded animal ambassadors.

Rock Eagle 4-H Center’s environmental educators will help children explore the world of these fascinating animals and the important role they play in our ecosystem. Participants will get an up close, personal look at native wildlife with the opportunity to touch and hold some of these magnificent creatures. This program will be fun and educational for people of all ages.

Crawl, slither, or hop on over to Rock Eagle 4-H Center from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. on July 16 and explore the wonderful world of reptiles and amphibians.

This session costs $3 per person and will last approximately two hours. Doors will open at 9 a.m. Following the program, Rock Eagle’s Natural History Museum will be open. Advanced registration is required.
