“Howl at the Moon” is an information/engagement series conducted for Toddycats to better inform and engage volunteers.

We invite Toddycats and external speakers to share their experiences and motivations, facilitate engagement between Toddycats and Friends and introduce conservation topics through games and quizzes.

Toddycats are notified of sessions through the mailing list.
