Saving the Lost, Strayed and Stolen – Wildlife Rehabilitation in Northern NY
Thursday, July 27 6:30 pm
Join local Wildlife Rehabilitators Katherine Nelson and Sue-Ryn Burns as they discuss the role of licensed Wildlife Rehabilitators in their effort to preserve and conserve our local injured and orphaned wildlife and how the public can help them with their task. Learn about the care that rehabbers provide to injured wildlife, the species most common to our area, and what to do if you find orphaned or injured wildlife. This program does not feature live animals.
This program is best for adults and older teens.
Free and open to the public. Donations are gratefully accepted.
Registration is appreciated.
The Summer Science Digest series is an education program partnership of the Indian River Lakes Conservancy and the Depauville Free Library.
About the Presenters
For several years now Sue-Ryn Burns has had her New York State Wildlife Rehabilitators License and her Federal Migratory Bird License. These licenses allow her to collect, possess, transport and care for orphaned and injured birds and animals with the goal of releasing them back into the wild. She lives on Wellesley Island with her husband Steve and a constant stream of furred and feathered creatures in need of help.
Katt Nelson has had her New York State License for almost five years, and takes in mostly small mammals. She lives in Redwood with a yard full of squirrels, birds and chipmunks who have her well trained to keep the feeders filled at all times.
