ALLIANCE, Ohio - From snakes slithery across the ground to birds soaring in the sky, the John T. Huston - Dr. John D. Brumbaugh Nature Center of Mount Union College will hold two workshops welcoming nature's spring creatures.

On Saturday, March 17 at 2 p.m., the Nature Center will hold Snakes Alive!, a workshop that will investigate the differences between reptiles and amphibians, explore the benefits of having a healthy snake population and even get "up close and personal" with some of Mother Nature's slithering friends.

Snakes Alive! is an informal workshop, open to adults and families without registration.

Then, on Tuesday, March 20 from 8 to 10 a.m., the Nature Center will hold the workshop, Celebrate Spring! Participants will gather in the new bird observatory to see which feathered friends are early arrivals this spring.

So the birds will not be the only ones eating, a free continental breakfast (donations accepted) will be available during this workshop.

Celebrate Spring! is a limited enrollment workshop, intended primarily for adults and older youth through pre-registration by calling (330) 823-7487.

All workshops are free and will begin at the Visitors Center. The Nature Center is located six miles south of the Mount Union campus on St. Rt. 183.
