Dan Thrift / Tahoe Daily Tribune/ Great horned owls will be among the birds and animals that may be seen during the Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care open house.

Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care will host an open house from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. July 30 at its facility, 1485 Cherry Hills Circle. The community is welcome to attend.

There is no entry fee; however, donations are always accepted and appreciated.

Everyone will have an opportunity to tour the portion of the rehabilitation facility that is usually closed to the public.

They will see birds and animals that are on hand, including six raccoons, 15 great horned owls, eight barn owls, six red-tailed hawks, two beavers, a bear cub on a monitor, a 6-week-old mink and various song birds.

Refreshments will be available, plus various Lake Tahoe Wild-life Care logo clothing will be for sale.

“We hope to have some type of a display for the new facility we are working on at the old Meyers landfill,” said Tom Millham, LTWC secretary/treasurer. “We will have monitors at different points around the compound, showing pictures of the various birds and animals we work with.”
