Wildlife rehabilitation center open house

Submitted By Angela M. Hartman, Volunteer Recruitment Coordinator

The Ohlone Humane Society Wildlife Rehabilitation Center invites you to "Be a Wildlife Detective," an open house event on Saturday, April 26, from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.

Join us behind the scenes when we open our doors to the public one day a year. Come see how we help rehabilitate over 1200 wild animals each year that are injured or orphaned. Thanks to our members and the community we are celebrating our 10th year helping Tri-Cities wildlife.

The event is free and open to all ages. Learn about our local wildlife, take a behind the scenes wildlife hospital tour, listen to Native American story telling, make a bird feeder, discover Owl Puke, or play our wildlife detective game and win a prize.

Parking is limited - Park in the Door to Door Storage parking lot and walk up the road to the wildlife center. For more information, call (510) 797-9449 or email us at ohswildlife@yahoo.com.

If you have found an injured or orphaned wild animal do not attempt to feed it. All wildlife creatures have special diets. Until you can bring it to our wildlife hospital, please place the animal in a box with a paper towel on the bottom. Place the box in a quiet, stress free area away from noise, pets, and children. To report an injured or orphaned wild animal, call (510) 797-9449.
