The morning session is an intensive caretaker training workshop centered around performing mass trappings and effective colony management. Those already experienced in these areas might still benefit from observing how to run a basic training. If you want to expand TNR efforts in your area, you'll need to get new people and residents involved (and trained). The workshop has been attended by over 1000 residents in New York City.
The afternoon session addresses specific strategies for getting TNR accepted by municipal officials, like the town or city council, dept. of health, etc. Also, how to build a TNR movement with little money and few volunteers. Registration is due by Oct. 13 and the workshop fee is $50.
