Bunny Boot Camp
Come to Peacebunny Cottage for our 1.5 hour introductory class for adults and families that serves as a fun, hands-on introduction to rabbit anatomy & to home care for the rabbits in our program.
It also serves as a prerequisite for those who wish to volunteer AND our Foster First program.
Come to one of our classes open to the public to attend OR contact us to schedule a private class for your group, scout troop etc.

After completion, each child in the family may request to receive a certificate. For some families, this class was "just enough" while others may wish to apply to FOSTER FIRST in their home, volunteer...
This class is just the beginning to meet us and find out about service learning opportunities with STEMbunnies.
