CANCELLED Animal Photography for Kids @ Marin Humane
May 9 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

WE’RE SORRY, THIS WORKSHOP HAS BEEN CANCELLED.

Join us for a fun photography workshop! Our theme will be “A Day in the Life at Marin Humane” as we photograph daily activities and shelter animals at our Novato campus. Prior camera experience is not required. Instruction and handouts on basic photography principles will be provided and the main focus of the workshop will be on techniques to capture great photos.

What to bring:
• Digital camera (fully charged). If at all possible, please bring a dedicated digital camera.
• Memory Card (empty)
• Extra batteries

At the conclusion of the workshop each student will leave their digital storage card with the
instructor. Photos will be uploaded to a private gallery for viewing and the card will be returned by mail. Each student will receive a set of five original greeting cards featuring their favorite photos. A limited number of digital cameras are available for use during the class for students who do not have access to one.

The class will be taught by Kathie Meier, longtime Marin resident, Marin Humane volunteer, and avid photographer.

Recommended for children ages 10 – 14.

Cost $50

This is a virtual Zoom class. If you haven’t used Zoom before, we can help you get set up before class starts.

CANCELLED Hoppy Hour @ Kitty Corner
May 11 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

WE’RE SORRY, THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED.

Join us at Kitty Corner in the Red Hill Shopping Center in San Anselmo for “Hoppy Hour” and meet some of our wonderful rabbits (and maybe guinea pigs) available for adoption.

Hoppy Hour is a great opportunity to find out if a rabbit would be a good fit for your family. Learn what rabbits need to live a long and healthy life, what type of housing is best for them, what kind toys they like, and much more.

Our animal-lovin’ crew will be on hand to answer all of your bunny questions, so hop on over… you might just find the perfect “bun” to adopt.

People only, please – no pets allowed. No kitty adoptions during this event.
