As reported by Happening in the Hills, March 12, 2020. The Litchfield Garden Club will sponsor an Open Conservation Meeting on Thursday March 12, 2020 at 12:00 noon at the Litchfield Community Center. The speaker will be Megan Parker, co-Founder and Director of Research for Working Dogs for Conservation, the world’s leading conservation detection dog organization.
Working Dogs for Conservation (WD4C) has traveled to five different continents to consult, collaborate, and build capacity to make conservation happen. WD4C’s trained dogs have found Chinese bush clover in Iowa, yellow star thistle in Colorado, rosy wolf snails in Hawaii, and brown tree snakes in Guam. Their dogs have become an invaluable tool for protecting pristine habitats and eradicating invasive species.
