Erik “The Reptile Guy” Callender recently visited Robert Frost, introducing students to important conservation concepts and teaching respect for wildlife through opportunities to interact with real reptiles such as snakes and alligators.

We’re always looking for opportunities to bring our science students into contact with nature,” said David Knuffke, Deer Park’s curriculum associate for science. “Presentations like Erik’s bring experiences to our district that students will remember for years to come, and help to foster a meaningful connection between them and the natural world they are a part of.”
