Black Racer Snake Walk – a Beautiful & Beneficial Reptile
Walk Leader: Andy Sabin, President, SOFO Board of Directors
Andy Sabin, known to us as the “Salamander Commander,” is equally as interested in snakes as he is in salamanders. In fact, Andy is fascinated by all kinds of reptiles and amphibians, so he is just the right person to lead us on a search for the Northern Black Racer snake (Coluber constrictor). What’s more, we’re in luck— the field behind SOFO, known as Vineyard Field, is the perfect habitat for this very active, diurnal (it comes out during the day) reptile. To ensure we can find them, we’ve put boards out in the field which these snakes like to hide under. So, we’re very likely to see some snakes on our search with Andy. This program is for all ages.
There is a $10 fee for Adults and $7 fee for children for this program. Members are free.
