Adult Workshops

  • April 29: Co-Existing with Wildlife
  • Our foothill communities are teeming with native wildlife. Years of drought and warmer weather have caused wild animals like coyotes to venture further into our communities in search of food, water and shelter. Join us for a free seminar on humanely coexisting with wildlife. Topics include how to prevent wild critters from visiting your property and what to do if you see a wild animal in your neighborhood. This workshop will be held in the Classroom at the Pasasdena Humane Society & SPCA. It is free and runs from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. No RSVP required.
