Park Ranger Dustin Beaty will be presenting a program about snakes at the Bandy Creek Campground at 7:00 p.m. (EDT) on Saturday, June 1.  This evening program will be held at the Bandy Creek campfire circle.

Visitors will have the opportunity to see a live corn snake and a live black rat snake.  Participants will become more familiar with these often misunderstood reptiles.  Visitors will learn what precautions to take while participating in outdoor activities, what to do when they see snakes, and what to do if bitten.

The campfire circle can be found by entering Bandy Creek Campground and turning left toward Area A.  Across the road from the swimming pool parking lot, a trail leads to the campfire circle.

For more information, contact the Bandy Creek Visitor Center at (423) 286-7275.
