California Wildlife Center recipes

California Wildlife Center

It’s time to share a couple more things about the California Wildlife Center that didn’t make my last post. As part of the tour, we had the chance to visit the hospital area and see recovering baby humming birds and mourning doves that were so cute.

We also saw where volunteers check in to find out about new arrivals and what types of animals currently need care. There was a huge white board full of acronyms listing all the patients and where they were located at the Center. Next to the white board was a  thick white binder containing all the food recipes and instructions for each animal. Flipping through it gave you a real “taste” of what it would be like to volunteer. Enjoy!
