Introduction to Wildlife Rehabilitation

Wednesday, July 30, 7 – 8:30 pm at BEEC


Each year BEEC fields many calls about orphaned wild babies. Patti Smith and Fred Homer, licensed rehabilitators, end up with their hands full. Fred has been rehabilitating birds for many years, and Patti has taken over the small mammals. They really could use some help! Do you love wildlife?  Click here for more info!

Summer Herbs: A Program for Women

Take an evening stroll through BEEC’s fields and forest with herbalist Lucia Kloster. We will look for and learn about the many nourishing and healing plants that grow in Vermont in July. We will gather herbs to make a tea, and then head indoors to enjoy the tea while we make a salve or a lip balm using wild plants that grow in our region. This event is sponsored by the Women’s Freedom Center. Space is limited: please call the Women’s Freedom Center, 257-7364, to register.
