KINGMAN - The Arizona Game and Fish Department's summer wildlife series will open Thursday with the presentation "Venomous Critters of Arizona."
Now in its second year, the series will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the Powerhouse, 120 W. Andy Devine Ave. The presentations are free and open to the public.
The series, which runs from May through August, will be the second and fourth Thursdays of the month, except in August, which will be the first and third Thursdays.
"Last year was sort of an experiment," said Zen Mocarski, information and education program manager for Game and Fish Department's Region III office. "I wanted to gauge public interest. I thought it went well, so we're back for a second round.
On Thursday, Mocarski will speak about the different types of venomous critters, how to avoid contact and what people should do in the event of a bite of sting.
