What does an Eastern Sierra Wildlife Care volunteer do? Find out at ESWC’s free annual New Volunteer Orientation on Sunday, March 22, from 1-3 PM at the Center. As a non-profit organization, Eastern Sierra Wildlife Care depends on volunteers to keep things going.
Some volunteers serve as members of our Board of Directors. (Two Board Members recently developed an outreach program aimed at preventing fishing line/wildlife entanglement.) We currently need to fill some Board vacancies.
A network of volunteers from Walker to Death Valley are called on when we need a Bald Eagle rescued from June Lake or an injured Golden Eagle transferred to the Raptor Center in Ojai. More volunteers for the Rescue, Return and Transport Team are always needed to help us cover more than 2,000 square miles.
ESWC brings Living with Wildlife programs to schools and community events—it takes volunteers to make that happen—and a whole lot more!
As part of working with animals (Animal and Foster Care, Rescue and Transport), Rescue and Return Team volunteers built a platform high in a pine and reunited a young Bald Eagle with his family last July. Last month, a Transport Team volunteer drove a White Pelican to Ridgecrest where it was picked up for transfer to water bird specialists in Orange County. Nearly 40 volunteers help with ESWC’s annual Wild Spirits fundraiser. Others help with building and repairs, others with website and social media.
Don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about the work of Eastern Sierra Wildlife Care, get a close up view of our facility, and meet Razzle the Raven, Red-tailed Hawks Bullitt and Spirit, our Wildlife Ambassadors.
