URBAN BIOLOGIST TO SPEAK AT FEBRUARY MEETING, FEB 21

January 10, 2011 · Filed Under Block Captain, Events and News · Comments Off on URBAN BIOLOGIST TO SPEAK AT FEBRUARY MEETING, FEB 21 

We live in an urban jungle, literally. Even though there’s yet to be a feral hog or bobcat sighting in Arlington Heights, there’s plenty of other wildlife around us.  We share our yards with opossums, raccoons, rabbits, squirrels, lizards, toads, geckos, bats, owls, hawks, turkey vultures, rats, mice, and occasionally even foxes and coyotes.  Have you ever wanted to know about them?

Join urban biologist Jessica Alderson, our featured speaker at the AHNA membership meeting on Monday February 21 at 6:30p.m., for an enlightening look at the world of urban wildlife.  Jennifer will share with us her ideas about what to do and not do to maintain the delicate eco-balance in our neighborhood.   Alderson received her B.A. and M.A. in Wildlife and Fisheries Sciences from Texas A & M and now works for Texas Parks and Wildlife.

HOW TO AVOID BEING A VICTIM OF CRIME, JAN 17

Monday, January 17 at 6:30pm
Arlington Heights United Methodist Church
4200 Camp Bowie Blvd. (enter on Hillcrest)

Property crime is up everywhere, including our neighborhood.  Several times a week, cars in our neighborhood are broken into and so are our homes. With the upcoming Stock Show and Rodeo and Super Bowl, we can expect the trend to continue.  As long as the unemployment rate is high, there will be thieves on our streets looking for opportunities to take advantage of careless property owners.

On Monday January 17 at 6:30 p.m. at our regular AHNA membership meeting, Neighborhood Patrol Officer Teri Majors will analyze the crime trends in our neighborhood and lead us through a series of easy steps to take to protect ourselves from becoming another entry in the daily crime report.

Also at the meeting will be a representative from the police department who will generate RAPIDS labels encoded with the barcode of an individual’s driver’s license.  The tiny labels can be adhered to your valuables and have become a very successful tool in tracing stolen items back to their owner. The RAPIDS labels are very difficult to remove once they’ve been stuck on to an object.  They’re free and an ounce of prevention can save you a ton of heartache and inconvenience.
