Posted By: Liz Goodrich
Date Posted: 10/8/2014
We share the High Desert with some pretty scary critters. Join our friends from the High Desert Museum for a close encounter with some of our creepy, crawly and slimy neighbors on Tuesday, October 14, at the Downtown Bend Library at 6:00 p.m.
The program is free and open to the public and part of the Know Fright
series this October at Deschutes Public Library.
Carolyn Nesbit, Curator of Education at the High Desert Museum, says people can expect an assortment of invertebrates, amphibians and reptiles found in our own backyards. She and her staff plan on bringing a cast of critters that will make you shiver. “We’ll be bringing a variety of species including Desert Scorpions, Black Widows, a Long Toed Salamander, a Western Toad, a Gila Monster and a Western Rattlesnake,” she says.
