An “After School Special – The Remarkable Reptiles” will be held on Monday, January 16 at 4 p.m. at the Lime Creek Nature Center.  Reptile expert Jim Gerholdt will present this program using a variety of artifacts and live reptiles, including a large boa constrictor.

Gerholdt has been presenting reptile programs since 1985, and is also the author of 32 children’s books on reptiles.  His photos of reptiles, amphibians, insects and spiders have appeared in numerous magazines.  He is presently employed part-time by the Science Museum of Minnesota, teaching continuing education classes on reptiles and amphibians.  Gerholdt is a founding member of the Minnesota Herpetological Society, and works closely with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources in field studies with the timber rattlesnake and other species.

This exciting and educational program is sponsored by the River City Kiwanis.  It is free but registration is required.  Please call 423-5309 to register or for more information.  Children must be accompanied by an adult.
