What does your dog see, smell and think about when you take it on a hike in the woods? What risks to the local environment might a conservation biologist see at the same time? How do we accommodate both and continue to enjoy environmentally responsible hiking together with our dogs?
To learn the answers join Connecticut Audubon Society’s Senior Director of Science and Conservation Milan Bull and his dog, Edge, on a hike set for Saturday, May 7, from 10 a.m. to noon, at the Caryl and Edna Haskins Preserve, Green Acre Lane off Compo Road South in Westport. Joining Milan and his dog will be noted dog trainer Jason Hoffman (203 Pet Service). At the request of hike leaders and to avoid chaos, please do not bring your dog to this educational event.
