Co Existing with Wildlife
What do you do if you encounter a bear, coyote or other animals in your yard or outdoors!

Get answers and ask questions at the Free Public Forum on COEXISTING WITH WILDLIFE: Simple Solutions, Thursday, February 22, 2018, 6:30-8:30 pm, the Windsor Public Library. Sponsored by the Windsor Conservation Commission.

This forum will provide simple ways to protect yourself, family, pets, and property and also understand the importance of wildlife's ecological value to human existence and survival and the land. Annie Hornish, CT Director of the HSUS (Humane Society of the United States) will share her expertise and provide important guidelines on this growing situation. A growing number of people have expressed concerns about seeing more and more wildlife on their property. Humans do not always understand the meaning behind how animals react and interact.

For your safety and to protect wildlife, save the date and become aware and informed!

You just might find a solution to your brick wall through a fellow family history searcher in these FREE discussion and problem-solving sessions at the Society. The Society recently purchased a World Explorer membership to Ancestry.com, which means worldwide records are now available to all support group participants. Come see what it’s all about.
