Sierra Wildlife classes in February will begin with “Introduction to Local Wildlife” on Saturday, Feb. 8, from 1 to 3 p.m. This class for the general public, will provide an overview of the natural histories of most species SWR rehabs in El Dorado County. If you become interested in rehabbing, you can follow up with classes on specific species, beginning in February and taught by experienced rehabbers.
For prospective rehabbers, “Rehabbing Baby Skunks,” 10 a.m. to noon and “Rehabbing Squirrels,” 1 to 3 p.m., will both be held on Feb. 22.
Classes on other species will be held during March and April. We always need and welcome prospective new rehabbers, so come find out how rewarding caring for these little critters can be.
All classes are held at SWR’s Wildlife Center, 3030 Newtown Road in Placerville and are free to SWR Members; a $5 donation is requested from the general public. Parking is limited, so please make reservations well in advance with Barbara, at 530-621-2650, or at [email protected] 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.
