The Mansfield third and fourth grade gifted and talented students recently visited the Janet Huckabee Nature Center. They learned about critters of Arkansas, practiced their archery skills, and learned about Arkansas snakes, even petting them!
Throughout their time at the center, they learned that there is no such thing as a poisonous snake. Rather, that there are only venomous and non-venomous snakes.
