Our prolonged drought is forcing an increasing number of wild animals to move closer to human habitations as they search for food and water. Most residents of the Eastern Sierra share their home territory with wild birds, mammals and/or reptiles at some times and to differing degrees; human-wildlife conflicts—such as a striped skunk digging up your lawn for earthworms and grubs or rabbits foraging in your garden—are on the increase. Problems such as birds hitting windows or getting trapped in buildings have also become more frequent.

ESWC recently responded to three calls of hummingbirds trapped in buildings. Feeders placed closed to doorways can sometimes be responsible.

Eastern Sierra Wildlife Care is experienced in handling hundreds of “living with wildlife” calls annually. The workshop will give ample time for questions and discussion. Consultants from ESWC will offer humane, non-lethal methods to reduce conflicts and resolve problems, examine the impact of new state laws concerning trapping and relocation, and provide counsel for your particular problem.  Learn simple, inexpensive ways to reduce unwanted visitors from your garden or save birds from dying from window strikes.

Call Cindy or Kelly at ESWC, 760-872-1487 for information or to reserve a space for the workshop.
