The Connecticut State Museum of Natural History at UConn presents “Management of Timber Rattlesnakes in New England: Perceptions and Attitudes of Connecticut Residents ,” a lecture by Lindsay Keener-Eck and Dr. Anita Morzillo from UConn’s Department of Natural Resources and the Environment The lecture will be held on Saturday, May 13, 1 pm at the Biology/Physics Building, Room 130, UConn.

Timber rattlesnakes (Crotalus horridus) are endangered in most New England states. Yet, there is little knowledge about resident interactions with this species, and how timber rattlesnakes are perceived by the public. Such information is important for guiding management strategies for the species and associated public outreach efforts. Recent research at UConn involved examining Connecticut resident attitudes toward timber rattlesnakes. Graduate student Lindsay Keener-Eck and Assistant Professor Dr. Anita Morzillo from the UConn Department of Natural Resources and the Environment will discuss findings from this research.
