SWR begins 2012 with new classes

Start the New Year with the wonderful experience of learning more about the lives of all of your wild neighbors, including rabbits, squirrels, fawns, skunks, foxes, coyotes, raccoons, opossums, hawks, owls, ravens and crows, waterfowl, and numerous species of songbirds.  Or learn to rehab orphaned or injured wild animals to return them to the wild.

Sierra Wildlife Rescue’s 2012 classes on wildlife will begin in January with “Introduction to Local Wildlife,” 7 to 9 p.m. on Jan. 4. “Are you Ready to Rehab?,” for those interested in learning about rehabbing, will be held from 10 a.m. to noon on Jan. 14, and also from 7 to 9 p.m. on Jan. 19.

Additional classes on rehabbing specific species will be held from February through April, and classes on volunteering at the Baby Bird Nursery will begin in March. In addition to a two-hour class on each species, all new rehabbers receive hands-on training from experienced mentors, rehabbing supplies, a manual, and continued training and support for as long as needed.

All classes are held at SWR’s Wildlife Center, 3030 Newtown Road, Placerville.  Parking is limited, and classes fill up fast, so  make advance reservations 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.
