Jeremy Stout, manager of the Steele Creek Park Nature Center, will be at the Bristol Public Library on June 20 in the J. Henry Kegley Meeting Room for a special presentation on poisonous flora and fauna native to the region. His program begins at 5:00 p.m. and will last approximately one hour, as Stout shows off the different varieties of poisonous plants and venomous creatures common to east Tennessee and southwest Virginia. He’ll teach attendees which are best to avoid and which are harmless.

The Steele Creek Park Nature Center is a 2,600 square foot educational facility that showcases the natural history and beauty of Steele Creek Park. Employees of the Nature Center offer guided hikes and educational public programs to help with continued conservation efforts at Steele Creek Park.
