The Texas Master Gardeners of Williamson County will hold a free program, Snakes and Safety, on June 13 in Georgetown.
“If you have ever been surprised by a snake in your lawn or garden, you know it’s not a pleasant feeling,” said Kate Whitney, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service horticulturist for Williamson County, explaining they wanted to offer a program that would help gardeners remain safe.
The event will be from 7-8 p.m. at the AgriLife Extension office in Williamson County at 100 Wilco Way, Room 226. Everyone is welcome to attend, no registration is needed.
The Texas Master Gardener program is an educational volunteer program conducted by AgriLife Extension. Throughout the year, Master Gardeners deliver a variety of programs in cooperation with AgriLife Extension across the state. There are over 6,000 Texas Master Gardeners in 112 counties.
