SNAKE DAY FESTIVAL AT COCHRAN MILL NATURE CENTER 

 

August 27th, 2011 10:00 – 3:00 Cochran Mill Nature Center, Palmetto, GA

 

Each year Cochran Mill Nature Center holds its Snake Day Festival in hopes of educating the public on the wonders of reptiles and dispelling the myths associated with these incredible creatures. Through exciting reptile exhibits and educational talks, visitors become better acquainted with this often misunderstood group of animals. Come out to the center and meet our anaconda, venomous snakes of Georgia, a 12’ albino python, giant mouse-eating bullfrog, boas, lizards, turtles, frogs, giant scorpions, an alligator and lots of other cool critters. Arts and crafts, games, fresh popped popcorn, an 18 foot bouncy slide, and guided canoeing will be available all day as well. Come try our famous hotdogs and hamburgers grilled in our bathtub grill!
