By Joyce Newman, Environmental Reporter
What should you do if you find a baby bird on the ground? An orphaned rabbit? An injured squirrel? On Tuesday, March 18 at 10 AM, Sheldrake Environmental Center will host a workshop on caring for injured wildlife.
Learn what steps to take from licensed wildlife rehabilitator, Kate Murphy, at this event, which is co-sponsored by Sheldrake and Animal Nation, which is based in Rye and serves local Fairfield and Westchester County areas.
Animal Nation operates a Wildlife Line that you can call if you find an injured animal– 914-400-6014. Their website also has addition information on caring for pets and farm animals.
The workshop is recommended for the general public, as well as personnel from veterinary offices, nature centers, local police and fire departments, animal rescue groups, humane societies, pet stores, and museums.
RSVP to: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 914-834-1443. There is a $10/person fee for the workshop.
