A warm thank you to the 225+ folks who attended our Open House at the San Francisco Bay-Delta Wildlife Center on October 20th! We had a great time opening our doors to get to know you, and giving you an exclusive behind the scenes look at how we rehabilitate injured, orphaned, and sick waterbirds.
We heard you when you said that choosing which of the family-friendly fun and educational activities to do first was a challenge! Our once-hourly education talks focusing on wildlife rehabilitation, oiled wildlife response and research advancements were all very well attended and you had many inquisitive and challenging questions for us! You may have learned at our interactive information tables about how oil can be washed from feathers, and about how ocean debris is affecting the health of many seabirds.
Our silent auction, with all proceeds benefiting the birds, might have had you taking home a favorite piece of art or a gift certificate….or maybe you took home a bag full of sweets and treats from our baked goods table! Any way you slice it, YOU are a part of the Bird Rescue community joining our mission: acting toward balance with the natural world by rescuing waterbirds in crisis. We had so much fun and hope to see you again next year!
