Reptiles of Martha's Vineyard

Classroom: Students learn about native reptiles and their island habitats. We bring live, native turtles and a
non-native snake into the classroom to provide an
opportunity for students to learn about the unique characteristics of reptiles and how they meet their basic needs for survival. This program also emphasizes
actions that children can take to protect these animals. We hope to dispel any fear of snakes and help students understand how to observe snakes in the wild.
Optional Reptile Walk in early fall or late spring
Field Trip: Explore the Sanctuary looking for reptiles as we cross over Turtle Pond and uncover our snake boards. We will discuss the importance of protecting habitat and how to interact with the wildlife we find.
