Snake Identification and Safety Class Scheduled Saturday at TPML; Attendees Invited to ‘Kill the Fear, Not the Snake’

Brett Parker, who works for Canyon Lake Fire/EMS and owns Hill Country Snake Removal, will teach Saturday's class.

Snakes are still slithering around Canyon Lake.

“Snakes are trying to find their winter home right now, they don’t establish large dens necessarily in our part of Texas due to not having a true winter, normally,” said Brett Parker with Hill Country Snake Removal.

“Snakes will be out and about until we have constant temperatures below 60 degrees.”

To learn more or to as Parker likes to call it, “kill the fear, not the snake,” sign up for his 10:30 a.m. Saturday Texas Snake Identification & Safety Class at Tye Preston Memorial Library, 16311 S. Access Rd., Canyon Lake. The class is free.

Attendees of all ages will learn the facts about native Texas snakes from Parker, who also works for Canyon Lake Fire/EMS. He’ll bring his own live snakes and cover common myths about snakes, tell how to identify them from a safe distance, and what to do if you find one in. your yard.

“After this course, you will understand the vital role that snakes play in our ecosystem, and what not to do in the event of a venomous snakebite,” he said.
