12/16: Snakes, 12/30: Turtles, 1/13: Insects and Spiders. 1:30pm - 2:00pm. Feel the smooth scales of a snake slide through your hand, hear the hiss of a giant cockroach, and see a tarantula up close and personal. This short program will give you a new respect for some “critters” who definitely don’t fit into the cute and cuddly mold, but are some of nature’s greatest creatures. Forest Park Nature Center, 5809 N. Forest Park Drive, Peoria Heights, IL. For more information call (309) 686-3360.
