Snakes of Panama Workshop – 6 October 2015

I received a request to post the following.

FREE workshop – A detailed workshop lasting about 2 hours, including information on:

Why care about snakes anyway?
Snake concerns in Panama
Identification of common Panamanian snakes
Living around snakes safely
Training workers and assisting local residents to understand snake
Special session for small children followed by supervised activities.
The lecture and workshops are both free. We appreciate donations made to Team Snake Panama. We also will take orders for our bilingual field guide, The Venomous Snakes and their Mimics of Panama and Costa Ricaand Team Snake Panama t-shirts.

We also plan to have a representative from Maps of Central America offering maps and guides for sale with a percentage of proceeds being donated to Team Snake Panama. Check out for information on available material.

Location: Skateworld of Boquete (about 1.9km south of Centro Ivan Mercado in Alto Boquete)

When: 1:00pm – 3:00pm

Please plan to purchase drinks and snacks at Skateworld of Boquete if you would like refreshments.

If you have any questions, please contact me at

If possible, please register prior to Tuesday so we can get a reasonable headcount so that Skateworld of Boquete will know how many tables & chairs will be needed.

Here is the link to register. Each person attending should fill out a separate registration form. If your family has 2 adults and 2 children, you should fill out four registrations.
