martine-01Oct. 21st: Martine Colette, Founder and Director, Wildlife Waystation
Take a walk on L.A.’s wild side… safely
“Opossums don’t know any better than to eat out of people’s garbage and hide in their backyards,” according to Wildlife Waystation founder Martine Colette. “What would you do to survive if your natural home was just destroyed one day? Some people feel threatened co-existing with animals. But all the animal is trying to do is stay alive.”
What can you do if you suddenly cross paths with an opossum, coyote, mountain lion or any of the other many species native to the LA area?  How can you help these animals thrive while protecting yourself and your home?  Find out!
About the speaker: A lifelong animal lover, Martine founded the Wildlife WayStation in 1976.  Today, she is the Director of the 160-acre facility that has provided aid and support to more than 75,000 wild and exotic animals from all over the world. The ranch also offers a 24-hour, 7 day-a-week wild animal response service and an education center. The Wildlife WayStation processes an average of 60,000 phone calls per year. Martine is also the designated wild animal expert for the city of Los Angeles, helping Angelenos navigate the tricky balance as the city’s growth encroaches upon more wildlife areas.

Additional info:

Just got this list of vegan menu options from the food truck that will be at our next Books & Brews event on Monday. We didn't pick the truck, but these look worth checking out:

Vegan chili served with toast, on fries, or with a small bag of Frito's
BBQ tofu steaks with roasted mashed potatoes
Fried eggplant with grilled mixed veggies
Vegan crab cakes with palm hearts and grilled corn

Our guest speaker will be Martine Colette, founder and director of the Wildlife Waystation. Best Friends is bringing their mobile adoption unit and Angel City, in addition to having some extremely tasty microbrews, is the most dog-friendly brewery in LA.

Thanks,
Amy
