Our May CLE luncheon is sure to be a WILD one! Attorney Sam Coppersmith will be joining us to share his experience representing Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center (SWCC), Scottsdale’s own “Red Cross” for Arizona’s native wildlife. SWCC rescues native wild animals that have lost their homes to development, or are found injured, orphaned, or abandoned. When possible, the animals in are rehabilitated and released back where they belong. Those animals that could not survive in the wild live out their lives at the accredited sanctuary. Mr. Coppersmith will discuss the legal issues SWCC has encountered over the past 20 years with state and federal regulators, County zoning, and the most recent nuisance lawsuit from one of its neighbors. Mr. Coppersmith will be joined by Southwest Wildlife Executive Director Linda Searles, who will also share information about the center and its plans for the future. Linda also plans to bring a great horned owl and its handler! This is one luncheon you won’t want to miss!
