Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care hosts annual open house
Once a year, Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care hosts an Annual Open House. This Sunday, August 4, 2013, from 10am to 4pm, is the one opportunity of the year where the public is allowed inside the fenced area to see the animals which are in rehabilitation up close. All are invited to meet the volunteers of this important local organization, and see the results of their compassion and dedication firsthand.
Cake and cookies will be donated by Harveys/Harrah’s Lake Tahoe and MontBleu Resort. Punch will also be served.
In addition, retail wear is available for sale (t-shirts, jackets, sweatshirts, polo shirts as well as the brand new LTWC logo ball cap with an eagle embroidered on the side!).
The rest of the year, you can tune into LTWC’s live webcams at www.ltwc.org. As of this writing, there are raccoons in the bobcat enclosure, and a bear cub with a leg in a cast in the raccoon enclosure. You can also keep an eye on all of the webcams at once here.
We hope you will join us this Sunday from 10am to 4pm at Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care (1485 Cherry Hills Circle, South Lake Tahoe, off of Elks Club Drive). Bring your family and tell your friends. Enjoy this opportunity.
From www.LTWC.org: Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care is an independent, nonprofit volunteer organization whose function is to raise, rehabilitate and release orphaned and injured wild birds and animals. LTWC operates under permits issued by California Fish & Game and the United States Department of the Interior & Wildlife Service. No fee is charged for any bird or wild animal brought to the center, nor is any wild animal refused care.
From a handful of people in 1978 with an idea to help wildlife in their area, LTWC has grown to an organization that now provides a service to more than nine counties in California and Nevada surrounding the Lake Tahoe region.
