MAHS at the Yahara RiverFest (2016)

MAHS at the Yahara RiverFest
Location: Conservancy Commons Park, DeForest WI
Date: Saturday, September 10th 2016
We had an awesome time today at our first ever Yahara Riverfest at Conservancy Commons Park in DeForest educating all about reptiles and amphibians! Yahara Riverfest is an annual, fun filled family day celebration dedicated to promoting the conservation of Madison/Dane County’s Yahara riverway! We had several different species of native (and some not so native) turtles and snakes at the event, and we had a blast talking to and spreading the word about all of these amazing animals! Thanks to the Yahara Riverfest planning community for inviting us out, and even conquering their fears by holding a Burmese python for a photo opp!
