Biologist discusses the misunderstood rattlesnake

Tuesday, June 7 at 7 p.m. — FAIR HAVEN — Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department biologist and rattlesnake researcher Doug Blodgett will discuss this reclusive but much-maligned and misunderstood reptile, the rattlesnake, during his visit to the Fair Haven Free Library. The event will take place on Tuesday, June 7 at the library beginning at 7 p.m. Rattlesnakes are native to Rutland County and can be found locally in West Haven and Fair Haven.

During the visit, Blodgett will discuss the tough challenges the rattlesnake faces at the very northern end of its range in the continental U.S. He will present the life history of this original Vermont native animal and reveal some interesting results of his research on this endangered species, conducted in our own backyard.

The Friends of the Fair Haven Free Library are hosting this visit. The Fair Haven Free Library is located on Main Street in Fair Haven and the program is free and open to the public.

Light refreshments will follow.
