Scouts learn about snakes, bears, fish hatchery

Wednesday, August 31, 2016
Cub Scouts from Pack No. 76 and their parents enjoyed a 'Snakes Alive' presentation given by Ryan Persinger, naturalist with Missouri State Parks last weekend, one of many different nature-themed workshops and events held at Roaring River State Park in Cassville during Kids Fishing Day. The scout group held its annual parent-scout camping event at the park the same weekend, and, thanks to the good timing, got to enjoy a few fun activities offered at the event. They also attended a workshop about bears, toured the fish hatchery and went on a hike. Persinger holds up the hides of snakes indigenous to Missouri, such as the copperhead and kingsnake, to educate the audience how to identify venomous versus nonvenomous snakes.
