Tri-State Bird Rescue to hold open house May 4

Apr 29, 2014


Tri-State Bird Rescue & Research Inc. invites the community to an open house from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Sunday, May 4, at The Frink Center for Wildlife at 110 Possum Hollow Road, Newark to tour the facilities, learn about Tri-State's work to rehabilitate injured native wild birds, and have a lot of fun.

New this year, the wild bird rehabilitation organization will offer self-guided tours of the Frink Center for Wildlife so guests can learn about the center at their leisure. Stations will be set up throughout the facility, inviting guests to learn more about the expert medical care each patient receives, bird diet preparation and oil spill response. The open house will also feature an Ask the Experts table with information on native plants and wild bird appreciation and injury prevention.

Other local organizations, including Delaware Museum of Natural History and Delmarva Ornithological Society, will be on hand to further raise attendees’ awareness and appreciation of the natural world. The event is friendly for all ages, and children’s activities will be available. Food, beverages, baked goods and merchandise will be available for purchase.

Thanks to the support of sponsors, admission is free. Tri-State will, however, accept cash gifts and donations of paper towels and single-ply white toilet paper, which are used to make nests for baby birds. For more information about Tri-State and updates on the schedule of events for the open house, go to www.tristatebird.org. To inquire about sponsorship opportunities, call 302-737-9543, Ext. 108.

Tri-State Bird Rescue & Research is an internationally recognized, licensed, nonprofit wildlife rehabilitation organization that cares for nearly 3,000 injured, orphaned and oiled native wild birds each year ranging from hummingbirds to eagles.
