On Saturday August 29, 2015 at 2:00 p.m., retired Registered Nurse, Jill Long will present a program on Venomous Snakes focusing on Copperheads and Rattlesnakes “the two regular pit vipers residing in many of our gardens this time of year ”. She will tell you what you must do if you should sustain a bite from either of these two snakes.
- How to identify the snake
- How each snakebite affects you
- Why it is important to seek immediate medical attention.
The Library’s copy of the University of Georgia’s “Snakes of the Southeast” will be available for those interested in learning to identify the difference between these two venomous snakes.
Jill has her Master’s Degree in Family and Child Studies and is Certified as a Gerotonlogical Nurse. She and her husband moved to Clay County in 2004 from Peachtree City. She was elected President of the Clay County Master Gardener Volunteer Association in 2009. She is an active member of the Hiawasee Garden Club and like many of us in Clay County’s rain forest considers herself a “World Class Weeder”.
The program will be at Moss Memorial Library located at 26 Anderson St, Hayesville, NC.
