Sierra Wildlife rehabbing and informational classes continue in April, beginning with Rehabbing Adult Songbirds from 10 a.m. – noon and Foxes, Coyotes and Bobcats from 1 p.m – 3 p.m., both on April 4.  

Rehabbing Doves and Pigeons will be held April 11, from 1 to 3 p.m, Fawns on April 16 from 6 to 8 p.m, and Waterfowl and Game Birds on April 23 from 7 to 9 p m. 

Classes on volunteering for the Baby Bird Nursery will be held on April 11 from 10 a.m. to noon; April 14 from 7 to 8 p.m; April 25 from 10 a.m. to noon; and April 28 from 7 – 9 p.m. 

You need attend only one class to volunteer for the nursery, which will be open from approximately May 1 – July 31.  SWR always needs new volunteers for the Baby Bird Nursery; come to a class to learn how enjoyable and rewarding it is to feed orphaned baby birds for a two-hour shift, on a daily, weekly, or other time schedule of your choosing.

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 Barbara at 530-621-2650 or emailing her at 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!
