Rick Koval returns to the Dietrich Theater at 11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 6 for a free presentation of reptiles and amphibians of Northeastern Pennsylvania. After his presentation, there will be a chance to meet and greet some of these creatures up close and personal.
Reserve tickets by calling 570-996-1500. Tickets will be available at the door as long as they last.
The PowerPoint program will illustrate many species of frogs, turtles, salamanders, lizards, and snakes, including rarities such as timber rattlesnakes, eastern worm snakes, and hellbenders, all of which reside in northeastern Pennsylvania. This program is sponsored by the Overlook Estate Foundation.
Koval is one of the most popular presenters at the Dietrich Theater. He again will bring to us, through his photography, the world of animals we might encounter in the wild. Afterwards, he will answer questions and encourage participants to examine certain live amphibian and reptilian guests and even touch them. Because reptile and amphibian life is so rich in Northeastern Pennsylvania, there is always a very interested and enthusiastic audience for Koval’s presentations at the Dietrich, often filling the theater.
Koval is known not only as a presenter, but also as a staff naturalist on the popular WNEP-TV show Pennsylvania Outdoor Life. He is also the head naturalist for Skytop Lodge in the Poconos and outdoor writer for the Pocono Record.
