Sierra Wildlife Rescue March Classes

02/26/2015 11:44AM ● By Brenna McGowan
Mark your calendars for any of Sierra Wildlife Rescue’s March classes, which will include  “Rehabbing Opossums,” from 10 a.m. – noon and “Rehabbing Rabbits,” from 1:00 – 3:00 p. m, both on March 14; a repeat of “See Me, Hear Me, Touch Me,” March 21, from 1:00 – 3:00 p. m, an introduction to El Dorado County Wildlife and tales of rehabbing; and “Rehabbing Raptors,” March 25, from 7 -- 9:00 p.m.

Further classes will be held in April on rehabbing other species and on volunteering at our Baby Bird Nursery, beginning in May.

If you are interested in learning more about wildlife, the March 21 class is a good choice.  If you would like to learn about rehabbing any of these species, you will need to attend the class (es) of interest (only given once a year), followed by hands-on mentoring for several months with an experienced rehabber. 

All basic supplies for rehabbing are provided by SWR, and most others are reimbursable.

All classes are held at SWR’s Wildlife Center, 3030 Newtown Rd, Placerville and are free to SWR Members; a $5 donation is requested from the general public, or you can join SWR as a member. 

Parking is limited, so please make reservations well in advance by calling 530-503-5582.  Please cancel if you register and cannot attend, since there is always a waiting list.

SWR always needs and welcomes new rehabbers, so come join us to learn what a joyful, exciting and fulfilling experience rehabbing orphaned and injured wild animals and returning them to the wild can be!
