Animals that cannot be released may become permanent residents, but that doesn’t sound like such a bad life. The lovely lady in the office described docents’ efforts to enrich animals’ lives by providing them with special toys and puzzles.
I wandered the grounds and found snakes and lizards, hawks and owls, crows and ravens, foxes, coyotes, bobcats and mountain lions. There were a couple of porcupines, a beaver, and some fishers, too, and apparently in the spring there will be a coastal and jellyfish exhibit.
They say they are always in need of volunteers to help with rehabilitation, and docents to help educate the public.
I submitted my application! Wish me luck! This blog could get a lot more interesting!!!
