February Wildlife Center Training!

As you already know, NWRI has a new Wildlife Center at Ash Grove in Louisville.  What you may not know is that NWRI is an all-volunteer organization.  That means that to make our center run, we need you! The success of our new center will depend on a dedicated family of volunteers to staff the building, accept and triage animals, and answer inquiries from the public.  Can you help us save Nebraska’s wildlife?

Please join us 
this month for classes in our new Wildlife Center!  We are offering Volunteer Orientation and Wildlife Center Volunteer Training throughout February for NWRI's new and experienced volunteers.  We also have the unique opportunity to host the International Wildlife Rehabilitation Council’s (IWRC) Basic Wildlife Skills Class this month.  This class is taught by IWRC experts and will be held for two days at the Fort Omaha campus of Metropolitan Community College.  This class comes to our area only once every 4 or 5 years and is fascinating, so don’t let this opportunity pass you by!

You can make a difference, so please read on — and join us!
Further information on these events is available at the NWRI website. If you plan to attend any of these sessions, please RSVP to Laura at info@nebraskawildliferehab.org or 402-960-4366.
