Earth Day at Reptiles Alive

The weekends at the end of April and early May are always very busy at Reptiles Alive.  Earth Day events, Arbor Day events, Spring festivals and more keep all of our Wildlife Educators extremely busy.

Last Saturday, April 25 was a very exciting day.  Tony Bulmer performed three Live Reptile Birthday shows in Takoma Park, Arlington, and Vienna.  Rachel Walker drove all the way down to Maurertown, VA to perform two Reptiles Alive shows at the Shennandoah County Park Earth Day Festival.  Jennifer Pennington and Jennifer Rafter set up a Live Reptile Zoo Exhibit at the Northern Virginia Community College Earth Day/Arbor Day Festival in Annandale, VA.  The exhibit featured live reptiles and amphibians from Fairfax County, VA.

I performed three Reptiles Alive shows at my old park – Mason Neck State Park in Lorton, VA.  Besides our show, the Eagle Festival featured live birds of prey, live bluegrass music, a magic show, and more.  It is a great event that I look forward to every year.


It was a lot of work to get ready for the shows and the exhibits – but we all love meeting people and sharing our enthusiasm for reptiles.  We especially love meeting our fans, so be sure to check out our Upcoming Public Events section so you can come out and see us too!
