Getting to Know Middle Tennessee’s Snakes – April 22

Are you afraid of snakes? Or maybe just want to learn more about them? Bring your lunch and find out the truth about these misunderstood, but important members of our Tennessee ecology. Far from being the monsters portrayed in myths, legends, books and films, learn the true nature of these rather shy and fascinating creatures.

Lisa Powers is an award-winning nature photographer, writer and herpetologist/contract biologist. Her photos can be found in nature centers across the United States. Web sites around the globe have requested and use her photographs. Lisa has had many of her photos published in the Tennessee Conservationist Magazine and Tennessee Wildlife Magazine. She has photos in the Salamanders of the Southeast from the University of Georgia Press and the Reptiles of Tennessee, UT Press.
