Wildlife biologist Derek Yorks will speak about Maine’s snake species at Merryspring Nature Center Tuesday, March 12, at noon.

Yorks will discuss Maine’s nine species of snakes, from the small and secretive ring-necked snake to the (relatively) large and easily observed northern water snake. Yorks serves as lead biologist on reptile and amphibian issues at the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, where he coordinates research and conservation efforts on several priority rare species.

The lecture is part of the Winter Talk series. Admission to Tuesday Talks is $5, with free admission granted for Merryspring members. For more information, contact info@merryspring.org or call 236-2239.
