Do you have a doggy companion who simply will not listen to you? North Edge K9 joins us this month to share their proven method to train your dog that is not stressful, but is instead an enjoyable experience.
- Ways to develop a proper relationship with your canine companion.
- How to develop the skills to get your dog to work with you and not against you.
- How to motivate your dog to maximize your enjoyable time together.
One of our librarians had her puppy trained at North Edge K9 and highly recommends their methods for pups of all ages!

Falcons are powerful and impressive members of the raptor family and are one of the fastest animals on earth. Join us this month to learn more about these fascinating birds as we continue with our Maine Wildlife Series. At this talk, you’ll meet one of the Center for Wildlife’s impressive non releasable falcon education ambassadors, Freyja or Perry, and Maeve, their Merlin.
We love our wildlife series which teaches us about the natural history of these birds, along with hearing the personal stories of these beautiful creatures.
