Wellington, Busch Wildlife Sanctuary To Host Snake Awareness Seminar

It’s that time of the year again — snake season in Palm Beach County.

Wellington’s Neighborhood Watch team, in partnership with the Busch Wildlife Sanctuary, invites residents to a Snake Awareness Seminar on Tuesday, June 29 at 5 p.m.

This educational seminar is free to attend and will take place via the Zoom platform. Registration is required at https://wellingtonfl.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_DFWhcV9FRcC5xIDe-DPXoA.

Participants will learn how to identify local snake species, including rattlesnakes, water moccasins and more that they may encounter in their backyards, along with what to do and what not to do when caring for a venomous snake bite.

Wellington’s Neighborhood Watch Program provides members with tools that support the safety of the community and opens communication with the Village of Wellington and the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.

Neighborhood Watch also creates a sense of community, encourages involvement and observation, and advocates improved home security and personal safety.

Meanwhile, Neighborhood Watch block captains serve as leaders, encouraging neighborhood and business involvement.
