Wildlife Care will have open tour Saturday

Andy Bourelle

A renovated house exists in South Lake Tahoe where golden eagles, hawks, raccoons, stellar jays and a bobcat currently reside.

And the public isn’t allowed in there to see them. Well, the public normally isn’t allowed in. Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. will be an exception.

“It’s the only time the public is allowed in, the only time they’re allowed to visit,” said Cheryl Millham, executive director of Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care. “A lot of people want to come in and see what we do, see where their contributions are going.”

Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care, established more than 20 years ago, is a nonprofit organization where volunteers nurse injured animals back to health. Owls, baby squirrels, a weasel and a fawn also are currently being taken care of at the center.

Since its inception, the Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care has held only three previous open houses.

There is no cost, but donations will be accepted. Refreshments will be available.

Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care volunteers and its board of directors will be present.

“This will be an opportunity for anyone with questions about wildlife to get answers,” Millham said.
