Clarion PAWS held a Trap, Neuter, Return (TNR) Program on October 23, 2010. Dr. Valerie Bennett, chairperson of biology at Clarion University, spearheaded the volunteer recruitment of 24 Clarion University students for the three-day event.
PAWS trapped 18 cats to be spayed and neutered, vaccinated, and tested for illnesses.
The TNR program is designed to keep the feral cat population under control. The program is one of many that Clarion PAWS sponsors.
Clarion PAWS was featured as a "Power of One" organization at the recent NoMoreHomelessPets 2010 Conference organized by Best Friends Animal Society in Kanab, Utah & was attended by over 1200 people from all over the world.
Here are the links to the YouTube videos from the "Power of One"presentation. Clarion PAWS and our Clarion University TNR clinic from March 2010 are featured in Part 1 of the video.
Congratulations Clarion PAWS Volunteers on the outstanding job that you do!!!!

Archeological Summer Program with Dr. Susan Prezzano
June 21-July 2, 2010
The Archeological Program for Teachers, conducted by Dr. Susan Prezzano, a professor of Anthropology in the AGES Department, studied the cultural and natural history of the Allegheny National Forest (ANF) region. The participants learned about the natural environment and human past by interacting directly with a variety of resource professionals and educators.
Participants attended five days of mini-courses at Clarion University and lived in the residence halls on campus. In addition to the classroom instruction, they attended multiple field trips to areas throughout the region and spent five days conducting archeological fieldwork within the ANF.
This program was sponsored by the Stackpole Hall Foundation, the Allegheny National Forest, and Clarion University.
