UBER DRIVER FOR THE BIRDS!
Friday, March 3, 7 p.m.
PVC board member Ellen Campbell will share photos, videos, and intriguing tales of her adventures and misadventures as a member of the statewide volunteer “animal ambulance” network for Avian Haven. Ellen picks up birds in distress that have been rescued, and occasionally has to figure out how to safely capture a bird herself, in order to drive them to Avian Haven’s wildlife rehabilitation facility in Freedom, Maine. She says that it’s an honor to participate in Avian Haven’s mission, “...dedicated to the return of injured and orphaned wild birds of all species to their natural roles in the wild.” There will be time at the end of the program to discuss appropriate measures to take if you encounter a wild bird in need of rescue, and how to volunteer for Avian Haven yourself if you are so inclined.
Offered online via Zoom; Pre-register here.
