Coming right up! Tuesday, August 28, 6 p.m., at the Union Parish Library, 202 West Jackson St., Farmerville.
Our focus will be wildlife rehabilitation. Leslie Albritton of Downsville and Micha Petty of Shreveport will be our guest speakers. Both are Louisiana Wildlife & Fisheries trained wildlife rehabbers.
Leslie rehabilitates furry critters. Check her out on Facebook and you will find photos of baby possums, skunks, raccoons and more.
Micha rehabilitates herps. You can find him on Facebook as well. I hope Micha will show you a short video of his recent release of a big alligator snapper back into the wild.
Here’s the plan for the evening: At 6 p.m. Stephanie Herrmann and the Union Parish Library will kick off their anti-littering campaign. Beginning at 6:30 p.m. Leslie and Micha will each have about 20 minutes to talk about what drew them to wildlife rehab, their view of the LDWF program and their favorite critter rehab stories. That will leave up to 20 minutes for our questions.
I will provide a handout about the next wildlife rehab training scheduled by LDWF this fall.
At 7:30 p.m. we will have a business meeting. Among the items on our agenda: a treasurer’s report, membership renewal, need for one more board member, some terrific t-shirt design ideas from Kim Paxton, additional certification workshop plans, etc.
And to you patient folks from the east side of our service area: I promise we will come your way for the 4th Quarter Meeting. I’m thinking a Sunday afternoon at Poverty Point.
