Creepy Crawly Day at the Herrett Center

All the reptiles and other critters at the Herrett Center for Arts and Science will be on display in the Herrett’s Rick Allen Community Room the afternoon of Saturday, Aug. 11 for the annual ‘Creepy Crawly Day.’
Herrett reptile specialist Nick Peterson and assistants will coordinate the free event from 1 to 5 p.m. by explaining how the creatures live, what they eat, where they are found in the world, and how they interact with their surroundings. In addition to the live reptiles that live at the Herrett Center, reptiles and other animals from other locations will be on display just for this event.
Families are encouraged to visit at no charge. The Herrett Center is located on the North College Road entrance to the College of Southern Idaho. For more information, call 732-6655 or log on to
