"Snakes, Science and Sedgwick Reserve" with Hayley Crowell


Join Hayley Crowell and her colleagues on an easy walk within a mile of the field station to locate and observe rattlesnakes safely.  Learn about their habitats, behavior, and the important part they play in our ecosystem.  Rattlesnakes belong to a unique group of venomous snakes known as pit vipers (family name Viperidae) and the rattlesnake is the only pit viper found in California.


The walk will be followed by a lecture in the Tipton Meeting House.  Hayley will present her project, “Predicting the Effects of Climate Change on Thermal Ecology and Energy Budgets of Snakes.”


Hayley Crowell is a M.S. student at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo studying the ecophysiology of rattlesnakes for her thesis.


There is a suggested donation of $20 pp in support of outreach efforts at the Reserve.   Class size limited to 40 people.
