Creature Comfort: A Celebration of the Clinic
February 28, 2015 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm| Free
Celebrate the Wildlife Clinic—and the people who make it run. Meet the clinic’s staff and volunteers, and get a behind-the-scenes look at how the clinic operates, enjoying a live animal show of creatures rehabilitated by the clinic.
To comfort our creatures and help us prepare for the coming season, please bring surplus supplies like paper towels, bleach, trash bags, towels and rags, plus dog and/or cat food.
As Center members know so well, our wildlife clinic performs invaluable work as the only full-service wildlife rehabilitation center in a four-county area. Each year, more than 3,000 animals pour into the clinic, everything from gray squirrels to rare and endangered species like bald eagles and peregrine falcons.
Throughout 2015, the Schuylkill Center celebrates 50 years of connecting people and nature with a series of signature events, a time capsule, and chances for our community to join in marking this important milestone. This winter, celebrations begin with the Dick James Lecture and Creature Comfort.
