Colorado’s Rifle Falls State Park Complex Hosts Snakes Alive Program


Come visit any of the three parks in the Rifle Falls State Park complex and join special guest, Eagle Scout Greg Rohr from Boy Scout Troop 342 in Lakewood, to learn about corn snakes. Did you know the name corn snake is believed to have originated from the similarity of the markings on the belly to the checkered pattern of kernels of maize or Indian corn?  Greg will discuss the natural habitats of some of our snakes that are native to Colorado.  And, for those who are daring, Greg will have live snakes to touch. You will have several chances to learn about snakes:

  • Saturday, June 23 at 11 a.m. at Rifle Gap State Park.
  • Saturday, June 23 at 7:30 p.m. at Rifle Falls State Park.
  • Sunday, June 24 at 11 a.m. at Harvey Gap State Park.

For additional program information call Terry Wise, park naturalist, at 970-625-1607.
