Planning a meeting? The Bengel Wildlife Center has many rooms that you could rent for the day. Our most popular is the Anderson Great Hall. Complete with a cozy atmosphere and a fireplace, this room makes you feel at home. The Great Hall is also great for smaller holiday parties and get-togethers. Please call me, Jennifer, at 517-641-7677 or email me at to reserve your date today! (post with a picture of the Anderson Great Hall)

Don’t forget about our Education Fund! We started this fund this past year so that we can bring educational and environmental speakers to the Bengel Wildlife Center. If you’d like more information or donate to our Education Fund you may contact Jennifer at or give online at our secure website at

The public is invited to the Lenawee Conservation District Annual Meeting & Director Election on Thursday, January 12th, 2012 at the Christian Family Centre on 1800 West U.S. 223 in Adrian, Michigan. The evening begins at 6:00 p.m. with dinner followed by awards and a short review of the 2011 District programs. The event should prove to be exceptionally interesting with guest speaker Dr. Dennis Fijalkowski, Executive Director of the Michigan Wildlife Conservancy (MWC), bringing a presentation on cougars in Michigan and their activity in Lenawee County. With cougar sightings more frequently making the news in recent years, Dr. Fijalkowski will present MWC research and study work on the elusive cat. There will be a question and answer period after the presentation.

Tickets can be purchased in advance or at the door, but RSVPs are needed. Tickets are $12.00 apiece for adults and $8.00 apiece for children age 12 and under. Deadline for ticket reservations is Thursday, January 5th, 2012. To reserve or for more information call (517) 263-7400 Ext. 5. Be sure to bring the whole family for an enjoyable evening that is a sure cure for the “after holiday blahs”.

Miracle Solution for "Skunked" Pets

Chemist Paul Krebaum discovered a miracle cure for eliminating the odor from pets that have been "skunked." Combine one quart of three percent hydrogen peroxide (available from the drugstore), 1/4 cup baking soda (sodium bicarbonate), and one teaspoon of liquid dish soap, such as Ivory. Immediately apply to the stinky pet, then rinse thoroughly. The result is astonishing, according to Gina Spadafori, who recently provided the recipe in the Sacramento Bee. The solution is not available in sotres because it cannot be bottled. The merging of the hydorgen peroxide and baking soda creates a lot of oxygen in a hurry. This reaction, which is key to the solution, would cause an explosion in the closed container. The oxygen combines with the molecules that make up the skunk odor and neutralizes them.
