Snakes, lizards, frogs, toads, and salamanders are the stars of this program, and students will be able to view them up-close! The study of herpetology focuses on some of the most misunderstood and important animals in the world. Students will learn what makes reptiles so special and begin to debunk the fears that surround them. They will explore the world of amphibians by observing them in their specially designed enclosures and discover why amphibian populations in a natural habitat can be important bioindicators – signals of healthy or hurting habitats.

Limited spots available. Admission to the Exhibits is not included. There are two ways to register: in person at the Guest Services desk in the Museum lobby or contact the Group Sales department during regular weekday business hours at groups@cookmuseum.org or (256) 898-6312.
