There was a lot of rattle around town about the venomous snake workshop to be hosted by the Pike County Extension Office at Troy University’s Arboretum on June 21.

As of Monday, only two slots were available for the venomous snake identification, general safety around venomous snakes, handling/securing venomous snakes and venomous snake bite protocols.

Abby Peters, Pike County Extension coordinator, said, however, slots could reopen.

Online pre-registration is required.
