Meet Your Rehabber at Audubon Saturday, April 17

Mark Baker is one of the animal rehabilitators scheduled to be at Audubon Community Nature Center for Meet Your Rehabber on Saturday afternoon, April 17. Baker is pictured on a previous visit to Audubon with his Barn Owl.

The Audubon Community Nature Center will host animal rehabilitators on Saturday, April 17.

Local rehabilitators will be on hand to explain what to do with certain animals, which animals they can help and which they can’t, and which animals might not need help at all. The rehabilitators are a resource to wildlife and Audubon, helping to protect the creatures with whom everyone shares the world.

To meet these wildlife rehabilitators and perhaps some of their education animals, ask some questions, and find out how to best help wildlife one fines in distress, sign up for one-hour time slots beginning at 1 p.m., 2 p.m. or 3 p.m.

Face coverings are required for all participants ages 3 and up.

Admission is $8 for adults, $6 for Nature Center members and children 3 to 15, and free for ages 2 and under.

Space is limited. Paid reservations are required; register by calling 569-2345 during business hours or going to AudubonCNC.org and clicking through “Upcoming Programs.” Walk-ins are welcome if there is room.

Audubon will donate a portion of the proceeds to the rehabilitators to benefit their work.

The Audubon Community Nature Center is located at 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown and Warren. While practicing safe social distancing measures, visit the six miles of trails on the 600-acre nature preserve from dawn to dusk daily.

The Nature Center building includes the Blue Heron Gift Shop, live animals, and the winning photographs from the 2020 Nature Photography Contest. Visitors are welcome Mondays through Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Admission is by donation only.
