Anne Wooleyhand is the Educational Programs Director for The Marshall Legacy Institute – a non-profit organization committed to addressing the humanitarian impact of landmines around the world.  As part of her job, she travels to communities, schools and organizations with a retired mine detection dog, MDD Rico. Rico, a Belgian Malinois, and his handler were credited with contributing to the clearance of 600,000 square meters of land in Bosnia-Herzegovina.  They not only saved lives but also positively impacted the socio-economic growth of the country.  Following a presentation about the post-conflict impact of landmines, Anne and Rico will conduct a simulated demonstration showing Rico’s “sniffing skills” and welcome questions from the group
