Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care to host open house
August 3, 2012
Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care will host its annual open house from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 5.
Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care is a nonprofit whose goal is to raise, rehabilitate and release orphaned and injured wild birds and animals. Once per year, it opens its doors to allow the public to see its work and learn a bit more about the animals.
According to LTWC, the facility currently houses five bears, three bobcats, three golden eagles, two red tail hawks, two ravens, one small Saw-Whet owl, one river otter, nine raccoons and many birds.
This rare opportunity to see the center provides a great learning experience for kids and adults alike, LTWC stated.
Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care will accept donations from visitors, but there is no set fee to visit. It is currently trying to raise funds to move to a larger site, as well as cover everyday operating expenses.
Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care is located at 1485 Cherry Hills Circle in South Lake Tahoe.
