It isn't controversial to suggest that snakes are among the most commonly maligned and misunderstood beings in the animal kingdom. However, by interrogating one's assumptions of snakes, and by seeking a deeper understanding of their natural history, behavior, and value as beings with the power to shape and inform human culture, one can renegotiate and subvert the cultural patterns that have so deeply damaged the relationship between snakes and people. In this class, through conversation, council, and time on the land, we will explore the value of snakes as they relate to local ecology and human culture - and hopefully emerge empowered to forge deeper relationships with these powerful beings. Come join us for a 4-part series getting to know the snakes and reptiles of Sonoma County. This course will take place every other Sunday starting May 19th and will be centered around identification, habitat, and story telling; though also likely ranging into plants, ecology, and more.

Each class will build on the previous one so we highly encourage you to attend all four. We have left the option available to attend any number of the classes so as to offer some flexibility. If you can’t attend all four then we recommend you attending the first classes, rather than just the 3rd or 4th.

Classes will be held near Sebastopol. We may visit up to four locations. Specific information with location, directions, parking, etc will be provided before the series begins.

This workshop is open to participants 14 and up. Please review our policies for more information.
