REVIEW OF OPEN HOUSES
FROM PAST YEARS


Two Open Houses in October 2006

SUNDAY, October 8th and Sunday October 29th, 2006

9:00 A.M. until DARK

There were crowds nearly all day on both days as people stopped in to tour BACK TO THE WILD and to see how we are helping Ohio's native wildlife.

There were over 50 hawks, owls, peregrines, Bald Eagles, Great Blue Herons, songbirds, bobcats, fox, flying squirrels, reptiles, amphibians and more to see. Volunteers were available to answer questions and explain what the visitors were seeing. These trips offered a chance to see some "behind the scenes" activities at a wildlife rehabilitation center.

Although there was no admission fee, the donations left by many guests were much needed and are gladly accepted to help care for injured wildlife at the center.

4504 Bardshar Road, Castalia, Ohio.

If you know of an injured or orphaned animal, please consult our instructions for what to do. You need to be sure that an animal is, indeed, an orphan and not still under the care of its parent.


WILDLIFE RESCUE INFORMATION

BEST TO LEAVE THEM ALONE

It is easy to mistake UNATTENDED baby wild animals as "abandoned". Please watch from a distance and evaluate the situation. If you are unsure, call a rehabilitation center before removing them from their nest. In many cases, the mother is nearby, feeding or hunting for her young and will return when she feels it is safe to approach her nest. Even if you've mistakenly rescued a nest of babies, it is possible to REUNITE baby wild animals with their parent. In many cases, the mother will accept them back, even if you have touched them.

Do not plan on raising baby wild animals on your own. Young wildlife require special diets and care beyond what the average household is prepared to manage. Wildlife rehabilitators are fully licensed by both state and federal agencies, are able to provide proper diets, housing, and medical attention, and are adequately trained to care for and prepare an animal for survival and return to the wild.


If you are aware of a wild animal which you think needs assistance, you may contact BACK TO THE WILD® by telephone at 419-684-9539.
