They also shared each bird's permanent injury that requires it to stay as a resident of the Howell Nature Center. More information about the program can be found at http://howellnaturecenter.org/ .

common milk snake. Pictured above is Michael Tucker handling the Eastern Massasauga snake on the left
and Mrs. Carothers and her students gently passing around Nestle, the milk snake, on the right.
