This native but little-known snake was once a common part of our local landscape, but its numbers have declined steeply over the past few decades. Thanks to efforts by Lincoln Park Zoo and the Lake County Forest Preserve District, the smooth green snake has a shot at a comeback. Dr. Allison Sacerdote-Velat of the Lincoln Park Zoo will detail the work being done to study and help this species gain a stronger presence in the Chicago region. A question and answer session will follow the presentation. Visit for more information.
