Canines: In the Wild and In Your Own Backyard

Have you ever wondered how your pet dog differs from a wolf? Do you know which wild dogs live in New Hampshire? Find out the answers to your questions when Harris Center naturalist Susie Spikol Faber brings skeletons, pelts, and more to the Monadnock Humane Society (MHS). We’ll compare the domestic dogs we know and love with their wilder cousins, and search the MHS property for signs of wild canids. This program is free of charge, and open to dog lovers ages 5 to 95.

Saturday, May 6, from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Monadnock Humane Society, 101 West Swanzey Road, Swanzey. Registration is required. For more information or to register, please contact the Humane Society at (603) 352-9011, ext. 135, or social@humanesociety.org. Co-sponsored by the Harris Center for Conservation Education and Monadnock Humane Society.
