Learn About Your Wild Neighbors at Wildcare

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.

 

Wildlife Ambassador, Razzle-Dazzle (Common Raven)

Meet our Wildlife Ambassadors Spirit and Bullitt  (Red-tailed Hawks), Razzle-Dazzle  (Common Raven), Ms. Walter (domestic pigeon) and Harvey (milksnake).

There will be exhibits of bird nests, eggs and feathers, animal bones and antlers, turtle and tortoise shells, and more.  Educational handouts will be available to take home.

The hour-long programs can be scheduled on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, or Sundays between the hours of 10:00 am and 1:00 pm and held in the front yard of the Center.

For further information or to schedule a program, call Wildcare at 760-872-1487.

And remember to support Eastern Sierra Wildcare!

    Frankly speaking, I wish more people would support Wildcare and its services, whether through donations or actual volunteering. We are so fortunate to live in an area where seeing and living with wildlife in their natural environment is actually possible. Our highways and vehicles kill and injure countless wild creatures every day, every week, and every year, often orphaning their offspring.

    Thank goodness for Cindy Kamler and Wildcare. It’s exhausting work…and all of us benefit every time a creature is saved from suffering and relocated back into the wild, like the recent story on Sierra Wave about the Kit Fox that was rehabbed and released.

    Please do what you can to help Wildcare…and if you have kids, get them involved! No better way to teach them about caring and the beauty of nature and its creatures!
