This is just a quick post to share some information about the Bird Center of Washtenaw County, a non-profit organization dedicated to the care of injured and orphaned wild birds.
Their upcoming benefit and silent auction, Fly Away II, will be held at Weber’s Inn on Saturday, April 28th 2012, and we are providing them with a gift certificate, valid for 4 nights free pet boarding, to auction. We’ll be posting more about the Bird Center and this event soon.
The Bird Center has a volunteer training session coming up, so see below for all of the information on that.
The Bird Center of Washtenaw County is looking for volunteers for spring’s baby bird season.
Spring is almost here and with it the onslaught of orphaned baby cardinals, robins and mourning doves, as well as many injured adult birds. The Bird Center of Washtenaw County needs volunteers to help in caring for these birds until they can be released into the wild. If you would like to learn about being a Bird Center volunteer, you are welcome to attend a training workshop on Saturday, April 14th from 9:30am to noon.
The workshop will be held at Washtenaw Community College in Room 319 of the Gunder Myran Building from 9:30am to noon. Pre-registration is required. Call Carol Akerlof at (734) 223-0636. The cost is $5 for the training and coffee/tea and bagels. Volunteers must be at least 18 years old.
The workshop is an introduction to volunteer activities at the summer location of the Bird Center which is centrally located in Ann Arbor. People not interested in hands-on bird care, but who would like to volunteer in other capacities, are encouraged to attend.
The Bird Center of Washtenaw County works to provide care for injured and orphaned wild birds and to educate the public about the importance of protecting birds and our environment.
