  • How to Train Your Dog – Saturday, June 19, 2 p.m.

    Join volunteers, both human and canine, from the Humane Society of the South Platte Valley for this special introduction to working with your dog safely and effectively. And because the family dog is, well, the entire family’s pet, kids are invited to come and learn, too! You’ll learn the basics of establishing a positive reinforcement training system, the importance of consistency and kindness in working with your dog, and how to set everyone up for success. And for those kids ages 3 – 8 who might lose interest pretty quickly, we’ll have a special balloon dog training class! Please note that your dog will need to stay home for this program – this class is about training the humans so that they can go home and teach the dogs!

    Registration is required for this class. Please call the library at (303) 795-3961 to register.

  • The Future of Bees with Active Minds – Monday, June 21, 2 p.m.
    Found on every continent except Antarctica, bees are vital pollinators, making possible much of the food humans eat. In recent years, however, crucial bee species have experienced significant loss. Since the 1990s, the bumblebee population has plunged almost 90%. Additionally, since 2006, a malady called Colony Collapse Disorder has afflicted honeybee populations.  Join Active Minds as we dive into the world of bees and examine the factors that are affecting these important species.
