February 14, 2018 – A fun and informative presentation on “Saving Our Backyard Birds” will be sponsored by Wildlife Rehabilitation and Release on Friday evening, February 16th from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at the Madelyn Helling Library in Nevada City.

Linda Adams, avian biologist, will give a slide presentation focusing on the many species that visit and nest in the “backyards” of Nevada County.  She will cover reasons wild birds need assistance and what to do when you find a bird that appears to be in distress.  Included will be tips on living with wildlife, hazard and problem prevention measures, native plants that provide food and cover, feeders, nest boxes, safe pest control, and more.

At the break, attendees will get to meet up-close-and-personal, a Great Horned Owl, one of the group’s wildlife ambassadors.

If you are interested in the birds that visit or nest in your backyards, have questions or want to help with wildlife rehabilitation, you will not want to miss this opportunity. This is a free presentation. For more information, contact Linda Adams – linda.horsefeathers@gmail.com
