Thanks to all who contributed to make this incredible recovery occur in time to help save wildlife and rehabilitated birds live for release back to our communities. WCA is a volunteer non-profit so every dollar donated goes to saving wildlife from across our region. None of this would be possible without the kind hearts and caring hands of our volunteers and the generous donations from the community.
It takes a top flight crew to build a barn size aviary in a single day! We are so glad to have the skilled trades people at Wells Construction drop in to donate time to make it happen! THANKS for your good work and great sense of humor.
The building is rising and work continues thru the day, but the volunteers from Wells Construction have blown away the destruction caused by January storm winds! Donations from the Sacramento community, skilled trades people and project leadership from Wells Construction are blowing away those bad memories and giving WCA's dream of a replacement in time to help thousands of birds test fly before release this year into reality in a single day! Thanks from all of us at WCA!
Skilled trade people volunteering with Wells Construction are clearing the debris, all the remains of the former aviary test flight cage destroyed by storm winds, and raising a completely new replacement today! The new five space replacement will give WCA more flexibility in species separation, a stronger structure and help thousands of rehabilitated birds from our region live to fly again! Thanks to all who contributed to making this disaster into a win for wildlife and our volunteers who give them that second chance.
The contributions of our community and the donations from Wells Construction have made a new flight cage soar into the air at Wildlife Care! Project Lead Jim Brown from Wells Construction has turned a disaster into a win with help from volunteers, skilled tradespeople and material donations from Homewood. The huge single space aviary destroyed by the January windstorm will be replaced with bigger, better and stronger spaces! Thousands of injured and orphan birds rehabilitated by WCA volunteers will test fly again before return to communities across the Sacramento region. A million thanks to everyone who helped make this remarkable recovery fly!
Patient of the Day - these infant racoons came in yesterday and are in the great care of one of our home rehabilitators. Baby season has begun.
Keep your fingers crossed and hope the flowers seeded on Saturday pop up! We flinged the bling as Red and Gold poppy seeds were added to the WCA facility grounds. Hopefully they grow into a bright new colorful addition at the facility located in the old radar dome that's home to our wildlife volunteers. Gold for our CA wildlife and Red as the traditional military flower honoring our mission and heritage at McClellan Park.
Help us feed our Opossums and Raccoons!😁 These two LOVE chicken so we are hoping to get some donated that we can freeze and feed it to them throughout the busy season. Here is an example of what we are looking for but any chicken we can freeze will do https://www.walmart.com/ip/ValBest-Chicken-Leg-Quarters-10-lbs/51259048 Thank you in advance!
