Humane Education

The HSSBV’s certified and credentialed Humane Education Specialist provides classroom presentations to all grade levels at local elementary schools. The goals of the program are to teach compassion and respect for all living creatures, to teach proper care of domestic animals, and to protect wildlife and the environment. To receive more information on this program, or to schedule a presentation, please contact Lynn Hildebrand at (909) 386-1400, extension 220.

In addition to classroom presentations, the HSSBV Humane Education program also offers the following:

  • Field trips to the HSSBV facility with tour and educational presentation
  • Presentations and badge earning projects for Girl Scouts/Scouts
