KINGMAN - Snakes and spiders rank among the most common fears of people.

With this fact in mind, the Arizona Game and Fish Department's Region 3 office in Kingman will begin its six-part Summer Wildlife Series with Venomous Critters, 6:30-7:30 p.m., Friday at the Kingman Mohave County Library at 3269 N. Burbank.

This marks the fourth season the library has served as the host and sponsor for the presentations. The series itself is in its sixth season.

"Venomous critters is always a popular presentation," said Zen Mocarski, public information officer for the Game and Fish Region 3 office. "It's a good kickoff to the series and will include general information, safety tips, and what people should do in the event of a bite or sting."

Mocarski said the presentations will run approximately 45 minutes to allow time for questions.

The presentations are open and free to the public, although seating capacity is limited to 51 and will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis.

The rest of the schedule will be, in order: Coyotes (June 14), Mountain Lion Research (June 28), Wildlife Waters (July 12), Fishing Arizona - Crayfish (July 26), and the History of Archery (Aug. 9).

"The series has been well received and I hope people find our range of topics interesting," Mocarski said. "Regional personnel spend a lot of time putting these presentations together and I hope attendance at the series remains strong."

The presentations will also be posted each week on the Region 3 Facebook site, which can be found by searching for AZGFD Kingman.
