Alternative Animal Health Events & Workshops - USA and Canada - November - December 2012

It’s hard to believe that another year has gone by and we’re looking at the events for the last two months of 2012. Where does the time go? Things are winding down, and most of the events on this list are in November. Partly because many of the higher levels of courses take place towards the end of the year (and I only list introductory and level 1 courses with no prerequisites here, otherwise this list would go on forever), and partly because there are just too many other things going on in late November and December with all the holidays.

As usual, if you know of an event that belongs on this list, please contact me and I will add it.
