Red-tailed Hawks, Spirit and Bullitt, at Eastern Sierra Care Center

Are you a bit “bored” by the restrictions that COVID-19 has placed on all of us? Would you like to “get out of the house,” do something that is entertaining while learning about wildlife rescue and care at the same time? You can! Sierra Wave received this press release from ESWC Director Cindy Kamler about a great opportunity being offered by Wildcare Eastern Sierra:


Wildcare Eastern Sierra, with approval from Inyo County, is offering outdoor programs at their Keough Hot Spring Care Center.  Attendance will be limited to small groups of 10 or less. Safe distancing, masking, and other safety measures will be in place.
