The festival will also enable participants to tour the Snake Conservation Center.
The City of Sacramento, CA will hold its first SnakeFest in conjunction with World Snake Day, July 16, 2022.
SnakeFest promotes the conservation of these reptiles, stewardship of the environment and “peaceful coexistence between humans and snakes.
The free event is geared toward families and will be held as part of the global efforts of Save The Snakes, a nonprofit that works toward snake conservation around the world.
In addition to snake exhibits, attendees will be able to watch live snake presentations, activities for children, demonstrations, and of course, plenty of food to choose from. Attendees will also be able to tour the Save The Snakes’ Snake Conservation Center in Sacramento.
The center, dedicated to protect threatened snake populations around the world, displays reptile and amphibian species and sports education and interactive exhibits, all in service of introducing the public to the benefits that these reptiles have in their native environments. On hand will be snake biologists and educators who will offer workshops, learning tools for students and training courses on California’s native flora and fauna.
