Sierra Wildlife Rescue continues classes in February

From page A14 | February 01, 2013 |

Sierra Wildlife Rescue’s popular classes on wildlife for both the public and prospective rehabbers will continue in February. A class for the general public, “Introduction to Local Wildlife,” will be held on Saturday, Feb. 9, from 1 to 3 p.m. The class will touch on the natural histories of most species found in El Dorado County and surrounding areas.

If you are interested in learning to rehab baby skunks, or squirrels of all ages, you can follow up with “Rehabbing Baby Skunks,” from 10 a.m. to noon or “Rehabbing Squirrels” from 1 to 3 p.m., both on Saturday, Feb. 23. Classes on a wide variety of other species, including rabbits, raccoons, fawns, opossums, foxes, coyotes, bobcats, songbirds, waterfowl, raptors and other birds will be held in the coming months, throughout the spring. Training for volunteers for the Baby Bird Nursery will be held in April.

Classes are informal and fun, and learning more about your wild neighbors will increase your enjoyment of living in the foothills. Sierra Wildlife always needs and welcomes additional rehabbers, and you will have all the training and support you need from experienced rehabbers. You’ll also meet others who share your concern for orphaned and injured animals, and find out how fulfilling working with SWR as a rehabber can be.

All classes are held at SWR’s Wildlife Center, 3030 Newtown Rd, Placerville. Parking is limited, so please make reservations by contacting Barbara Barker at 530-621-2650, or at barbaraewing@cal.net. If you register for a class and can’t attend, please let us know as soon as possible, since there is always a waiting list. Classes are free to SWR Members; a $5 donation is requested from the general public.
