Community Leagues – Healthy Backyards Program

Besides educating through the Wildlife Hotline, WILDNorth is implementing an education program about living with urban wildlife. The goal of the WILDNorth’s Healthy Backyards Program is to empower members of the public with the knowledge necessary to ensure safe interactions with the wildlife that also call Edmonton home. Each individual has a role to play, and they can begin in their own backyards. Healthy backyards lead to healthy communities! No matter what our views on urban wildlife are, we need to challenge ourselves to find new and innovative ways to minimize negative interactions with the wildlife that call our cities home. Education is the first step.
*Each presentation will be customized slightly based on your community!

Participants can have a once in a lifetime opportunity to safely see a porcupine right before their eyes!
$150 per classroom or small group (up to 35 participants) + *mileage
$300 per assembly-style or large group (35+ participants) + *mileage
