Bill London, IDF&G, gave a presentation on “Spring Arrivals” and what it means each year to our native wildlife.
Sandra Williams, AIDA’s Volunteer Coordinator along with Beverly Taylor of our avian facility, the Ruth Melichar Bird Center, spent their time answering questions about AIDA’s work with orphaned wildlife, recruiting new volunteers to help, and showing off some of our early Spring babies, three and five-week old orphaned squirrel babies. “I call it First Contact”, said AIDA’s Volunteer Coordinator Sandra Williams. “It’s that moment when a person actually makes their first real connection with wildlife. It was amazing to watch 4 baby squirrels melt a room.”
Over 250 visitors were in attendance Saturday, and we were very glad to be a part of it. We would like to thank Carolyn Volk and the Foothills Learning Center for making AIDA a part of this annual event. We are always happy to share our passion for wildlife rehabilitation and our commitment to serve the wildlife in our community.
