SSSSsssss… A cool, slithering topic is on my weekly TV outdoor report this week. That’s because the popular “Snakes of Nebraska” weekend is upon us at the Ak-sar-ben Aquarium/Schramm Park State Recreation Area near Gretna, NE! See many of Nebraska’s 29 different species of snakes up-close!
The featured presenter is none other than Nebraska’s own snake man – UNL herpetologist and good friend Dennis Ferraro.
Find out more about this must-attend event for the whole family by tuning in to the outdoor report that airs LIVE on Omaha’s WOWT 6 News during the sports segment with Jeff Packer at 6 p.m. CST this Thursday, July 16th. The report can also be viewed on Saturday morning later in the station’s hour-long 8 a.m. CST newscast. Video replays of it are available on Digital Channel 6.2, Cox Cable Channel 120 or online at this link.
By the way, I have always been a fan of reptiles (and amphibians) and the crucial role they play in our ecosystems helping to control populations of insects and small rodents!
