Join us for our July program on Indigenous Snakes of Texas!

Wednesday, July 24, 2019
Houston Red Cross, 2700 Southwest Freeway, Houston, TX 77098

Refreshments at 6:30 p.m., presentation starts at 7:00 p.m.


Laura and Adrian Berg of Crossbone Corns will present on Snakes of Texas.  Educating people about the snakes that are indigenous to Texas is a passion at Crossbone Corns. Laura and Adrian feel that if people understand the native wildlife, they are more likely to respect it. That respect makes nature safer for the animals and people involved.
