Reptile and Amphibian Extravaganza Returns to Midwest City Library

Last year they hopped, crawled and slithered into your heart.  This year, they’re back . . . 

It’s time for the 2nd Annual Snake and Amphibian Summer Camp at the Midwest City Library, 8143 E. Reno on Saturday, June 12 from 9:00a.m. to 3:00p.m.

“What better way to spend a summer day,” said Midwest City librarian Suzette Felton, ”than cuddling with snakes, lizards, or turtles?  But maybe not the crocodiles.  ‘Peter Pan’ taught us never to smile at a crocodile—unless you really know what you’re doing.”

The day-long workshop is free and open to the public with specific classes for people wanting to know more about turtles, tortoises, snakes, lizards, Oklahoma reptiles and amphibians and, yes, even crocodilians.  To attend a class, or for more information, please call the Midwest City Library Information Desk at 405-732-4828.

The 2nd Annual Snake and Amphibian Summer Camp is co-sponsored by the Oklahoma City Herpetological Society.
