Alaska WildBird Rehabilitation Center was honored to host a crew of energetic and hard-working volunteers from Mat Valley Federal Credit Union on the recent United Way Day of Caring. During the week May 23-26 volunteers from local businesses and the community offer to assist non-profit organizations with springtime projects. This year we had two big projects to complete; covering the slatted openings of our rehab bird flight cages with wire mesh as predator proofing, and thoroughly clean out our storage trailer after a squirrel invasion. The Palmer Community Foundation provided funding needed for materials on the predator proofing, and the 8 volunteers completed both projects with time to spare! Thanks to Jasmine, Nikki, Kayla, Jeremiah, Crystal, Mandy and Ciara. We are very grateful for their able assistance and to MVFCU for supporting their volunteering efforts.
Be a steward for our wild birds
If you find an injured bird.
Call the Alaska WildBird Rehabilitation Center at 892-2927 for assistance. If your call is not answered, leave a call back number. There are some things you can do while waiting for a call back: If safe to collect the bird, put it in a box or animal kennel of a size so the bird cannot fly around. If the bird is large, or too active to collect, try to keep pets and other animals away from it. Do not attempt to catch an eagle without assistance. Read More...
