Reed Bingham prepares for 4th festivities

Adel - Rangers at Reed Bingham State Park hope to add a bite to their Fourth of July festivities.

Their celebration will include boat rides, cloggers and other entertainment.

Besides the fireworks, the park's slithering inhabitants will be the main attraction.

These venomous snakes will be a part of the park's live animal education program as a response to unnecessary deaths of non-lethal species.

"They have a very important role in the ecosystem and if you are not in any danger, you need to know your snakes to know that. So if it's not a dangerous and venomous snake, leave it alone. We want to teach people to identify and feel more comfortable about that," says Jennifer Glover.

Park festivities begin Saturday July Fifth at 10:00 AM.

Fireworks will begin after dark.
