At the Snake Trivia Challenge computer station, visitors can test their knowledge of Wisconsin snakes. A few of the other snake – related activities include painting a snake rock, designing a spiral snake, and making a sizzling soda snake.

Lunch and snacks as well as books and gifts will be available for purchase. Proceeds benefit the Friends of Havenwoods and the DNR Bureau of Endangered Resources.
