DNR plans chat about snakes

Facebook followers of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources can chat online with DNR interpretive naturalist Jarrett Manek about snakes from 2 to 3 p.m. Wednesday on the DNR’s Facebook wall.

Manek will discuss characteristics such as appearance, habitat and behavior about many of Indiana’s venomous and non-venomous snakes while handling them in short, pre-recorded video clips.

Participants are invited to join the conversation and ask questions.

Future topics, instructions on how to join a conversation on Facebook, and commenting guidelines are posted at dnr.IN.gov/7315.htm.

To join a chat, go to the DNR’s Facebook wall, facebook.com/INdnr, and click like (if you are not already a friend).

You may begin typing questions during the time slot. The DNR experts will answer questions as time allows.
