Weems 2013 was a great success! The volunteers talked to many people on the merits of prairie dogs and we made over $1100 in sales and donations. Many thanks to all those who volunteered or who helped the prairie dogs by donating or purchasing merchandise. Remember Christmas is coming and time to stock up on prairie dog swag! Woo Hoo
Prairie Dog Pals has three programs, Rescue, which includes rescuing prairie dogs and relocating them to safer locations, Stewardship, which includes advocating for and protecting their environment and the prairie dogs themselves, and Education.
Providing information to the public about prairie dogs and their plight is one of Prairie Dog Pals’ three programs. Our outreach volunteers are always ready to meet with any group to inform them about prairie dogs and/or answer questions.
Perhaps our best outreach opportunities are those not pictured. These occur when our volunteers interface with interested, sympathetic, and sometimes-hostile passers by. It is very difficult to dispel rumor, fear, legend and years of accumulated bias; however, an open mind is a fertile place and our volunteers do their best to dispel fantasy with fact and reason.
