GoG Sunday lecture series starts Jan. 25

       Four nature presentations are scheduled in a free Sunday lecture series at the Garden of the Gods Visitor & Nature Center, 1805 N. 30th St., starting Jan. 25.
       Running from 2 to 3:30 p.m., the talks will be in the center's theater. Reservations are not required.
       The Jan. 25 presentation is titled “Rattlesnakes and Other Snakes of Colorado,” in which naturalist Richard Holiday will display live snakes. According to Visitor Center interpreter Bret Tennis, Holiday's program “explores the myths and realities of the prairie rattlesnake (and other snakes).” The presentations will also include information about prevention and treatment of snakebites, Tennis said.
