Excerpt from March 22, 2008 Trailday Newsletter
NWF Habitat Stewards Recognition Program

Gregory TerritoAs a part of the recognition program for the work being done by the NWF Habitat Stewards,
Gregory Territo
, a well accomplished snake expert gave a fascinating overview of venomous and non-venomous snakes of Florida. Don't know for sure if we're any more comfortable around a diamondback rattler, but we know a lot more about them at least. Gregory brought a Ball Python and a Hog-Nosed snake with him for everyone to handle.

Following the snake show, a sumptuous barbecue feast was followed by Stuart Hall, K.Z. Zuckerman and Vic DiGiorno, the Scrub-Jay Trail "House Band" providing hours of their brand of really great music and fun. A great time was had by all.

During an intermission break, we took time to recognize all the hard work being done by all of you. Our thanks again to those who gave up so much of your time to make this event go so smoothly.

Jack Elrod artworkWe were then treated to a tremendous surprise by Mike and Jacki Osbun, who presented the Scrub-Jay Trail with a museum quality framing of the original artwork donated earlier by cartoonist Jack Elrod.This Mark Trail strip appeared in papers across the nation.
Thanks again Osbuns!
