WILDLIFE REHABILITATION: KEEPING WILD BIRDS WILD
TALK: Thursday, October 26th 6:30-8:00pm
This presentation will feature photos and stories about the birds at several rehabilitation centers in our area. Learn about the people who are committed to bird rehabilitation and to the process and work involved in the rescue of birds who are orphaned, injured or sick, with the animals eventually returned to the wild natural world. You will meet ambassador birds: those birds who were unable to be returned to the wild and now are used to educate the public about the work of bird rehab. We will focus on the work of Badger Run Rehab Center in Keno, Oregon.
WALK: Saturday, October 28th 8:00am-6:00pm
The morning outing will take us to Badger Run Rehab Center in Keno. The afternoon will have us roaming the Klamath Wildlife Refuge. We will carpool for this outing. Anticipate at least 1.5 hour travel time each way. An optional donation to Badger Run is encouraged at the end of the tour, with emphasis on OPTIONAL. Local bird guide Vince Zauskey will be co-leading this trip.
