    On Saturday, September 20, staff from the Jefferson Memorial Forest will show them the respect they
    deserve by hosting the Kentucky Reptile and Amphibian Day, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

    In the past, Jefferson Memorial Forest has hosted a “Snake Appreciation Day,” but the
    event has since “shed its skin” and has been expanded to include all reptiles and
    amphibians.

    “For the last several years, we have devoted a special day to snakes, to help people
    learn the importance of their place in the world,” said Christa Weidner,Jefferson
    Memorial Forest naturalist. “This year we wanted to include all reptiles and amphibians
    in on the fun.”

    The September 20 program is geared towards those of all ages and will include speakers,
    booths, children’s activities and live demonstrations with reptiles and amphibians. The
    Environmental Education Center also will be open for viewing animal exhibits on that
    day. The program is free and open to the public.

    Those who attend are encouraged to bring their cameras and a picnic lunch, but
    discouraged from bringing any reptile or amphibian pets.
