Cheryl Millham, executive director and founder of Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care, will discuss the organization and its activities at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at the South Lake Tahoe Branch Library, 1000 Rufus Allen Blvd.

Millham will offer the community a PowerPoint presentation on LTWC’s various wildlife encounters, rehabilitation efforts and different types of birds and animals handled throughout 2007. The presentation will include – but not be limited to – the Angora fire, 15 Mexican free-tail bats, five rehabilitated bear cubs, a playful river otter and, of course, the successful encounter with an “out-of-place” mountain lion that was tranquilized and rescued in the Tahoe Keys.

The free program is sponsored by the South Lake Tahoe Friends of the Library. Light refreshments will be provided.

The library is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday. It is closed Saturday and Sunday. For more information, call (530) 573-3185.
