LUVERNE — Blue Mounds State Park, Luverne, will host a Snake Patrick’s Day celebration from 1 to 3 p.m. March 14 at the picnic shelter in the park. Attendees will learn all about snakes with Park Naturalist Amber Brooks, make snake crafts and meet a real snake. People may stop in anytime between 1 and 3 p.m. for the come-and-go as you please adventure.

Brooks is also planning a Bunny Hop in the Park event from 1 to 3 p.m. April 4.
