Spring Cleaning!
The past two weeks, the Wildlife Center staff, students, and volunteers dedicated time to deep-cleaning the building and Center grounds. That meant cleaning windows, dusting tall light fixtures, and even organizing our bookshelves.

Shelf dedicated to "Wildlife Book Club" selections. Thank you to those who donated their copies of past book club books!

Hospital Cam Highlights
February's "Hospital Cam" day took place on February 22. Viewers had a chance to watch owls, songbirds, and hawks receive their daily treatments with the veterinary staff. There was even an unexpected patient featured --Black Bear yearling #17-0127. Be sure to check our website for the date of next month's Hospital Cam!

Welcome, Shannon!
Shannon McCabe joined the team as the new Wildlife Rehabilitation Intern. Shannon was a previous rehabilitation extern at the Center, and now she's taken on a new role through September. We're excited to have her as part of our team!

We caught Shannon for a photo while she was prepping Black Bear meals.
