Baby Bird Shower / Open House

Please join us in celebrating our 2nd Annual Fundraiser Baby Bird Shower / Open House on April 29th, 30th & May 1st from 11:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.  There will be activities for all ages:  silent auction items, games, crafts and much more fun.  We will have our education birds on display with our team of knowledgeable handlers to teach and answer your questions about Utah's native wildlife.  Since our goal is to release wildlife back to their natural habitat we only display birds that are non-releasable and held on our education permits.  Please come and learn about what we do, visit our educational booths; enjoy free refreshments, kid's games and more.  Your donation of a gift from our "Needs List" ( http://www.wrcnu.org/pages/donate ) or a cash donation is greatly appreciated and will help us gear up for the new season. 

A Little About WRCNU

The Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Northern Utah (WRCNU) has a new home in Ogden.  We are now located in the Carol Conroy Browning Building at 1490 Park Blvd, formerly the Ogden Animal Shelter, just west of George S. Eccles Dinosaur Park.   WRCNU is the only wildlife rehabilitation center in Northern Utah and the largest center of its kind in the state.  WRCNU provides people throughout Northern Utah with a place to bring wildlife that has been injured, orphaned, displaced, or is otherwise in need of assistance.  In 2010, we took in almost 1,700 wild animals in need of help.  Our goal is to rehabilitate and then release animals back into their natural habitat. Without this much needed service there are few other options for wildlife in Northern Utah.   

In conjunction with rehabilitation, WRCNU provides community education as a major component of its conservation program.  By developing a better understanding and appreciation of wildlife, habitat and the impact people have on both, we provide the knowledge to make informed decisions to make our world a better place for people and their natural surroundings. WRCNU will be partnering with Dinosaur Park to enhance their education programs as well as offering programs of our own.  Our services will include an outreach program that will bring a wide variety of wildlife and topics into the school classrooms, as well as education animals on exhibit and a fun place to visit.  

In order for WRCNU to continue providing these deeply needed services and to expand our efforts, we need your support-please remember that we receive no state or federal funding and like our wildlife, we survive by donations and contributions alone.   

Our Mission Statement:  

"Through wildlife rehabilitation and education we will empower the community to engage in conservation and responsible stewardship of wildlife and habitat."
