Caring for the Wild, One Patient at a Time
Join the Redwood Region Audubon Society for a potluck followed by a presentation by Monte Merrick, co-director of Bird Ally X. Found an injured wild animal? Call the Humboldt Wildlife Care Center. Operated by Bird Ally X, the Humboldt Wildlife Care Center is the only permitted all-species wildlife rehabilitation facility on the North Coast, serving an area larger than the state of New Jersey. The facility cares for over 1200 wild animals each year, from the hummingbird who collided with a window, to the raccoon hit by a car, and the barn owl poisoned by rodenticide. Monte will talk about wildlife rehabilitation and the work Bird Ally X does to teach the public how to keep wild animals out of harm’s way. There also will be information about the 2017 Christmas Bird Count at this event. Potluck starts at 6:30 pm and program at 7:30 p.m. Bring a dish to share and a mug for shade-grown coffee; we will provide drinks, plates, and utensils. Please come fragrance-free.
