Schramm Education Center is hosting the annual "Snakes of Nebraska" event, free to the public! University of Nebraska-Lincoln herpetologist Dennis Ferraro and his lab will lead a live snake encounter featuring most of Nebraska’s native snake species! The live snake exhibits will be set up in the Schramm Education Center classroom and will be available on both Saturday and Sunday.

Visit to see snakes up close and personal, find out about species in your town, and have your snake questions answered by the experts!
