Region 4 Education Service Center partners with Virtually Wild! Texas partners to provide students with engaging and interactive virtual field trips.






Super Cool Snakes!

dcns-vw-super-cool-snakes-may20-social-mediaJoin staff naturalists from Jesse H. Jones Park and Nature Center in Humble to learn all about snakes! Learn about some snakes found in Texas and across the United States, including how to identify them, what they eat, how they live their lives, and what to do if you encounter one in the wild. We might even get a bonus visit from “Lucky”, the 13-foot Burmese python! Whether you like snakes or not, humans need them because they play an important role in nature. A lot of people assume snakes are aggressive and dangerous but hopefully our scaly reptile friends at Jesse H. Jones Park will show you that they are generally docile and fascinating creatures that, when left alone, pose no real threat to people. Sessions are identical, and repeated for convenience.
