Josh, from Sparks' Ark, is a licensed animal damage control agent which allows him to address human wildlife conflicts through education as well as removal/relocation of problem wildlife when necessary. Josh also takes unwanted and abandoned exotics and gives them a home so they are not released or euthanized. In return, he travels the state with some of the rescues education people on their care and sharing his animal encounter stories. This session with Sparks' Ark will be exactly that, Josh bringing his animal rescues to the AOEC Brunswick and sharing his stories.
Open to all ages and abilities. $5 to attend.

Join us for a flight on the wild side and learn about Flying Wild!
