GRASS VALLEY, Calif. December 16, 2016 – Wildlife-themed merchandise will be for sale on three select days during the last week before Christmas at Wildlife Rehabilitation and Release’s Intake Center in Grass Valley.

Merchandise includes wonderful earrings in the shapes of native wildlife and birds, beaded wildlife-themed jewelry, hand-crafted nesting boxes, t-shirts, WR&R’s popular calendar and other gifts appreciated by wildlife lovers.

And for the person who has everything, consider purchasing an “adoption” certificate for one of the wildlife ambassadors. The purchase of a certificate will feed one of the wildlife ambassadors for a month or 6 months.

The Intake Center will be open for holiday shopping on Saturday, December 17 from 2:00 – 400; on Monday, December 19 from 5:00 – 7:00; and on Wednesday, December 21 from 2:00 – 4:00.

The nest boxes were hand crafted especially for WR&R and are becoming more and more important as trees die and are cut down. Put one or two up to replace the nesting habitat for songbirds, owls, or flying squirrels. All proceeds from these sales will go to supporting the continued care of injured or orphaned native wildlife.
