Albuquerque, NM — The inaugural Prairie Dog Pal-ooza event to benefit Prairie Dog Pals is coming soon. The event will feature a presentation by world-renowned Dr. Con Slobodnikoff. Dr. Slobodnikoff is the preeminent researcher into the communication system of Gunnison prairie dogs and the relationship between their communication and cognitive abilities. Don’t miss this chance to learn about the culture and society of prairie dog colonies, and their extensive vocabulary!

Prairie Dog Day will also feature a silent auction, entertainment, refreshments, great music by country-blues band Selsun Blue, and a chance to meet the folks who work everyday to save prairie dogs and their habitat. The silent auction will contain wonderful items donated by generous New Mexicans including art, gift certificates, travel packages, jewelry and much more. Great snacks will be provided by the Vegetarian Society of New Mexico.

Advance ticket sales are $20, or 2 for $35. To buy your tickets, contact Tammy at 505-410-3884 or go online (after January 15) to www.prairiedogpals.org.
