There will be a presentation and book-signing by Con Slobodchikoff, who has authored the new book Prairie Dogs: Communication and Community in an Animal Society.

3. Do good for whales and the Earth when you shop at Buffalo Exchange stores around the country on Saturday, April 25.
Buffalo Exchange, which sells new and recycled clothing, is holding its Dollar Day sale to benefit The Humane Society of the United States and our international arm, Humane Society International. Proceeds from the sale of all items priced at $1 will go to support our Save Whales -- Not Whaling campaign, which motivates people and countries around the world to protect whales from the cruel, outdated practice of whaling.
When you shop, look for our in-store display to learn more about whales and our campaign to save them. Then enjoy some great bargains on clothing and accessories.
