Return of the Snakes to Serpent Mound

Saturday, June 8, 2019

Built by Native Americans at least 1,000 years ago, possibly even longer, Serpent Mound aptly demonstrates the fact that the ability of serpents to inspire and intrigue people is timeless. This weekend we will pay honor to the physical animal that inspired the creation of the mound and its kin. We will be displaying live snakes, turtles, and lizards to not only admire and gaze upon, but to touch and learn from. Naturalists from Shawnee State Park will be on hand to answer your questions and the Arc of Appalachia will offer fun activities for children throughout the day.  More Information…
