Living With Wildlife


Living with Wildlife

Saturday, July 14, at 5:00 p.m.


Local wildlife rehabilitator, Danielle Sitar of the Sands Wildlife Rehabilitation Center will talk about the important work that she does caring for orphaned or injured animals such as squirrels, rabbits, and birds. She will talk about how to tell if a baby animal is orphaned, injured, or perfectly fine—and what to do if they need your help. Sitar will also share photos of some of the animals recently in her care through a photo presentation along with her favorite animal stories.

U.P. Wildlife Rehabilitation Coordinator, Gloria Urban has been rescuing and rehabilitating wildlife for fourteen years.  She rescues just about everything: raccoons, coyotes, red foxes, and even squirrels. Urban will join Sitar and will talk about her experiences and will answer questions about the important work she does with larger wildlife.

As a special treat for the program, some animals in their care may be brought in for a closer look.


A suggested $5 donation per adult or $10 per family is suggested.
