SWR announces spring wildlife classes

Spring isn’t far away, and the wild babies are coming.

Sierra Wildlife Rescue’s classes continue in March with a repeat of a class for the general public, Introduction to Local Wildlife, March 3, 10 a.m. to noon. Classes for prospective rehabbers will begin with Rehabbing Rabbits that afternoon, 1 to 3 p.m;  Basic First Aid for Songbirds well be held March 6, 1 to 7 p.m;  Squirrels (repeat), March 10, 1 to 3 p.m;  Baby Skunks, March 17, 10 a.m. t0 noon;  Fawns, March 24, 10 a.m. to noon and Raccoons, 1 to 3 p.m; and Raptors, March 28, 7 to 9 p.m.

For prospective baby bird nursery volunteers, Introduction to the Baby Bird Nursery will be held March 10, 10 a.m. to noon, and March 20 (repeat), 7 to 9 p.m. For the general public, Living with Wildlife (dealing humanely with wildlife conflicts) will be held March 31, 1 to 3 p.m. This class will teach you how to protect your home and property from damaging intrusions by wildlife without harming the animals.

Caring for wild animals in need is more fascinating and fulfilling than you can imagine. If you have a soft spot in your heart for a particular animal (or more than one), you won’t want to miss our rehabbing classes. If you decide to try rehabbing, in addition to the class on your species you will receive hands-on training and mentoring, all necessary supplies, a rehabbing manual, and continued training and support for as long as needed. All supplies are provided, or are reimbursable, by SWR.

All classes will be held at SWR’s Wildlife Center, 3030 Newtown Road in Placerville.  Parking is limited so make advance reservations for any class by contacting Barbara Barker at (530) 621-2650, or at bsb@d-web.com. Classes are free to SWR members; a $5 donation is requested from the general public.
