UPCOMING EVENTS AT VISITOR CENTER


Tuesday, May 16th, 6:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.: A Natural Approach to Positive Pet Behavior 

Along with lazy days at the beach and quiet camp outs in the woods come some not-so-pleasant summer experiences: heat stroke, snake bites, ticks and fleas. Learn from Best Friends veterinarian, Dr. Erin, how you can protect your pets from these dangers. Attend and get a *free travel water bowl for your next dog-day adventure.

*While supplies last.
