An introductory two day course for beginning wildlife or novice rehabilitators seeking formal education with a half day hands-on lab! This class is meant to be a flipped classroom experience. We challenge you to do your homework and readings before you get to your class. This will facilitate a richer learning experience in the classroom.

FYI Canada Classes: Please note we are currently researching how to improve the cost of international shipping. In addition to the rate charged by USPS we have had complaints that Canadian customs is charging extra fees on random packages. Per the postal service there is nothing we can do to predict or eliminate these charges.
