Homeward Bound’s ‘Lunch and Learn’ explores animal topics every month
MIDDLEBURY — Homeward Bound, Addison County’s Humane Society, will offer a new educational series aimed at informing the community about a wide range of topics relating to the wellbeing of animals. The Lunch and Learn gatherings will take place on the third Monday of each month from noon to 1 p.m. at Homeword Bound, 236 Boardman St. in Middlebury.
The first of the series kicks off in two weeks with “Humane Wildlife Exclusion.” Presenter JoAnn Nichols, a licensed wildlife rehabilitator, has over 30 years of experience with animals and will be talking about how to go about humane wildlife exclusion — this is a timely topic as animals wake up from the winter and start to look for place to have their babies.
Three more lunches will take place as follows:
Monday, April 15: “Ask the Dog Trainer” with Emily Lewis and Christine Blakeney
Monday, May 20: “Everything you ever wanted to know about Trap-Neuter-Release” with Mei Mei Brown and Deb Bird
Monday, June 17: “Addison County Disaster Response Team” with Maria Farnsworth.
Attendees should bring their own brown bag lunch. The presentations are free and open to the public, but pre-registration is requested as seating is limited. Interested parties may contact Hannah Manley at the shelter at 802-388-1100 ext. 224 or [email protected].
