Salem Parks and Recreation Department and Salem Public Library will host a family-friendly program about snakes and turtles at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at Pavilion 9 in Waterworth Memorial Park. Guest speakers will include Jenn Rose and Cheryl Mattevi, educators at Beaver Creek Wildlife Education Center. The presenters will bring a selection of snakes and turtles to the program and will teach participants how to identify the friendly and not-so-friendly. They will discuss the history of reptiles in the area and separate fact from fiction about these animals. To locate Pavilion 9, enter Waterworth Memorial Park from East Eighth Street, park in the parking lot near the duck pond and follow the signs.

Attendance is free and open to the public, and registration is requested online at www.salem.lib.oh.us or call the library at 330-332-0042 or Shane at 330-332-0052.
