ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Wildlife Rescue Inc. of New Mexico is inviting the public to stop by and join the birds and animals and the volunteers who care for them at its annual open house on Saturday, April 27, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the grounds of the Rio Grande Nature Center, 2901 Candelaria NW.
Visitors will get a chance to go “behind the scenes” at the clinic to take close-up photos of raptors, and to meet and speak with rehabilitators and state and federal officials, organizers said in a news release.
Federal rehabilitation permits typically do not allow birds and animals in care to be displayed throughout the year except for this open house day, they said.
There will be some free food and beverages available. So, mark your calendars for this educational but fun day.
The event is free but there is a $3 parking charge at the Rio Grande Nature Center, also home to the rescue operation.
Organizers noted that there is traffic construction at Rio Grande and Candelaria but detour directions are well marked.
We welcome suggestions for the daily Bright Spot. Send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
