The annual Maryland Wildlife Rehabilitators Association meeting will be held on Saturday November 1st, 2014 at the Patuxent Visitors Center. Spend the day learning from our exciting panel of speakers, while meeting new rehabilitators and catching up with old friends.

If that doesn't work with your schedule, or you would like to take both, we are having our MID WINTER BREAK OUT SESSION on Saturday January 17th, 2015 at the Maryland Agricultural Resource Center; the topic will be turtles. Did you know that of all the turtles tested for ranavirus by the USGS, the only turtles that tested positive for this deadly virus were from Maryland? Come and learn how to save them.

More material will be coming your way soon. Again, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact any of your board members; we are here to help.
