Baby Bird Workshop at Sharon Audubon Center, National Audubon Society


325 Cornwall Bridge Rd, Sharon, CT 06069. Phone: 860-364-0520.

10:00 am - noon. Appropriate Audience: Individuals 16 years and up interested in volunteering over the summer months. The Center's Wildlife Rehabilitation Program starts becoming more active in the spring, and, in the summer, Audubon Sharon receives many orphaned birds which need to be cared for and fed in preparation for their release. Baby birds should be fed for a 12-14 hour period and they eat quite often!  We are looking for people to help with feedings and with other areas of wildlife rehabilitation. This is a great parent/older child activity and we can accomodate most schedules.  Training sessions teach proper feeding and handling techniques. Interested individuals willing to volunteer over the summer should sign up for at least one training session and can register by calling Erin at (860) 364-0520 x11.
