Sierra Wildlife Rescue Volunteer And Rehabbing January Classes

Learn about the many different ways you can volunteer with Sierra Wildlife Rescue, as well as what rehabbing wildlife is all about.

Sierra Wildlife Rescue’s January class, “Are you Ready to Volunteer?” will be held on January 25, from 10:00 a.m.  – noon and again from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m.

SWR needs volunteers in all capacities, including but not limited to: planning fundraising events; serving on committees to attract members and volunteers, publicize our work, develop funding proposals, and participate in community outreach events; working with orphaned baby birds in the summer; assisting rehabbers; and organizing and staffing SWR’s Wildlife Center.

The class will also introduce you to what rehabbing wildlife is all about, with an overview of rehabbing a variety of mammals and birds. If you become interested in rehabbing, you can follow up with classes on specific species, beginning in February and taught by experienced rehabbers.  No prior experience is necessary. All that’s required is love and concern for animals and the willingness to learn. SWR supplies all necessary formulas and medications, and you can be reimbursed for other supplies needed. You will find that rehabbing orphaned or injured wild animal babies is more fulfilling and exciting than you can imagine!

All classes are held at SWR’s Wildlife Center, 3030 Newtown Rd, Placerville.  Parking is limited, so please make reservations well in advance by contacting Barbara Barker at 530-621-2650, or at  Classes are free to SWR Members; a $5.00 donation is requested from the general public.
