You can find out the whole schedule and other information and details on their Facebook page.

The Behavior Club is a veterinary student-run organization at Colorado State University. The club’s mission is to provide veterinary students with educational opportunities through lectures and hands-on experiences regarding animal behavior. The club does not focus on one particular species of animal, but rather provides behavior and training information for a variety of species including dogs, cats, horses, small ruminants, wildlife, pet birds, and small mammals.
