Rattlesnakes and copperheads

Habitat and habits

PORT JERVIS, NY — The Hub at the Port Jervis Public Library will host a program on rattlesnakes and copperheads on Thursday, November 29 from 6:30 to 7:45 p.m. in the Community Room at the library.

Snakes are a valuable and fascinating part of our regional ecosystems. Learn how to tell the harmless ones from the very few poisonous natives, where each prefers to live, their biology and their food preferences. 

The timber rattler and the copperhead are the most highly evolved of all snakes and, according to presenter Randy Stechert, they are the most charismatic of all species.  Come and see a live rattlesnake and see if you agree.

Seating is limited. Register in person at the library, by calling 845/856-7313, ext. 5, or by email at
