LEISURE Equine Emergency & Disaster Preparedness Your horses are your responsibility. In BC there is no designated government or disaster agency responsible for the evacuation, transportation and temporary stabling of horses during large scale incidents. Horse Council BC has developed a set of guidelines to help horse owners prepare for the worst. Lorraine Pelletier, Equine Canada Certified Western Coach & Professional Trainer and LEPS Rep & CDART member will review these guidelines that will provide you with information to assist you to plan and prepare in case of an emergency situation. This course is geared to Equine owners; however, material will be informative for other types of animals. All materials and a basic emergency kit will be included with registration.

Learn how to change your problematic eating habits. The Craving ChangeTM program is not a diet. It does not teach you what, when, where, or how much to eat. Rather it focuses on why you eat the way you do. As you become more aware of your own personal eating triggers, you will be better able to control your food cravings and change your problematic eating behaviours. This four-part series will focus on increasing your awareness of your eating behaviours, and will teach numerous strategies to assist you with overcoming barriers to achieve improved health. Sara, a Registered Dietitian and Certified Craving Change Facilitator, will guide you in reaching and maintaining a healthy weight by gaining control over your eating behaviour. Each person will receive their own comprehensive workbook included with registration. George Elliot - Library Facilitator: Sara Cormier, R.D.
