Enrichment Workshop

May 4 - 6, 2018

The Animal Behavior Center is pleased to present a two day Enrichment Workshop at our facility! This workshop will be informational and action-packed with several break-out sessions each day. Break-out sessions will involve making enrichment, building complexity in enrichment, observing animals interact with enrichment, incorporating enrichment through enclosure design and more. In between sessions, Lara Joseph will be presenting on the role enrichment plays in changing behavior, behavior issues, confidence-building, scientific studies, and how enrichment effects the mental and physical health of animals in our care. This workshop will focus on all animals and will be relative to our companion animals at home, to zoos, wildlife ambassadors, and shelter animals. You will be able to see how we use and design enrichment for all resident animals at the center.
