Snakes of Northeast Alabama

Join us for a fun campfire talk in the Great Outdoors!

Campfire Talks are a series of educational & entertaining programs located outside in DeSoto State Park. Campfire programs are held many Friday & Saturday evening (June –October) in our large campfire ring inside the improved campground. Talks are for all ages, & open to everyone!

Join guest naturalist Amanda Glover from Lake Guntersville State Park for a fun campfire talk about the common snake species of NE Alabama, both venomous & non-venomous. Learn how to identify them and what to do if you encounter them or are bitten. Seating is limited, so bring your own comfortable camp chair if you wish.
