Welcome to Snake Discovery, where I bring the reptiles to YOU and teach kids (and adults!) about reptiles during fun and educational programs! My hands-on style of learning grabs the attention of all ages, and plenty of props and live examples are used for a well-rounded, engaging program for everyone!

"What an awesome opportunity for the kids to see live snakes and other reptiles and learn about them. Emily is fantastic with the kids and I would highly recommend her for your child's birthday party or any group!" -Hilltop Daycare and Preschool, April 2015

To book a program, please email me at Info@SnakeDiscovery.com for details. For easier scheduling, it’s best to book your program at least 2 weeks in advance. If you’d like to book a program sooner than that, dates might be limited. But it never hurts to email me and see what I have open! I serve Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Starting in 2017 I will be offering two NEW reptile programs for you to choose from for your library, park, scout meeting, or other event!

1. Totally Turtles!: This program accompanies a PowerPoint projection and mentions all of Minnesota and Wisconsin's native turtles. Kids learn what makes turtles so unique when a volunteer gets to "transform" into one! Kids even have the opportunity to hand-feed a large tortoise, and feel the differences between five native species that also make an appearance. This program is great for an adult-based audience too!

2. Reptiles Around the World: This program covers reptiles both large and small, common and rare! Learn what a Legless Lizard is, touch a non-venomous "cobra" (the False Water Cobra which imitates a real cobra), see the difference between a normal and an albino gecko, and much more!

My generic program, "Snake, Rattle, and Roll" (which focuses on native reptiles) will still be offered of course! This program is my most popular one, making up about 95% of all my programs. It is great for all ages, and I bring the largest variety of reptiles to this one. It is also the program I bring to birthday parties.
