Are raccoons lounging under your deck? Rabbits nibbling your plants? Squirrels nesting in your chimney? As part of its Living with Wildlife speaker series, the Town of Oakville is hosting an information night on Monday, May 13, 2013, from 7 to 9 p.m. at Queen Elizabeth Park Community and Cultural Centre. Learn how to wildlife proof your home this spring by safely and effectively managing your wild neighbours.

Guest speakers will be on hand to offer residents practical advice on a variety of topics related to urban wildlife control. Ryan Rainville from Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control will discuss urban wildlife issues, as well as how to prevent conflict situations. Retired Canadian Wildlife Service waterfowl specialist Norm North will talk about the town’s Canada Goose management strategy. Laura Mackasey from the Oakville and Milton Humane Society (OMHS) will address the role the OMHS plays in managing Oakville’s wildlife.

Representatives from the Town of Oakville and Oakvillegreen will also be on hand to answer any additional questions. All participants will receive a free birdhouse kit. Queen Elizabeth Park Community and Cultural Centre is located at 2302 Bridge Road.
