Fairfax County needs your help to hunt and document snakes.
The county is conducting a survey of the “aggressive but misunderstood” water snakes that inhabit Reston’s Lake Fairfax Park.
From the Fairfax County Park Authority:
Water snakes get their name because they enjoy the water, but these non-venous reptiles have a bad rap because they are often confused with the dangerous water moccasin that has a similar look. Search with a naturalist for non-venomous water snakes and help to document their size, gender and location.
Here is what you need to know:
The count is Thursday, April 14 from 7 to 8 p.m.
Ages 8 through adults are invited to participate.
The cost is $6. Sign up online or call 703-471-5414.
