Biodiversity: A Growing Issue

Biodiversity is decreasing globally and becoming an international political issue. The variety and variability of life on the planet is important to the security of natural resources including soil, water, animals, and plants, as well as to food production and overall human health. This presentation will focus on biodiversity in the context of our local suburban/agricultural landscape, where we currently stand, the direction we're heading, and some ways local residents can improve biodiversity in their landscapes.

Therapy Dogs

Ever thought it would be worthwhile to take a dog to a nursing home, or care facility to visit residents? The Alliance of Therapy dogs registers you and your dog, after testing, to provide you with the tools to handle these visits with joy. Their goal is to form a network of caring individuals and their dogs who are willing to share happiness with others.  You'll meet Jo Tucker and her dog to learn about this work.
