WEDNESDAY, APRIL 24

- Wildlife Rescue 101 at 11 a.m.

Have you ever come across wildlife in "distress" but did not know the appropriate steps to help? Florida is home to over 700 terrestrial animals and other invertebrates, which all depend on sustainable recreational practices to survive. From posturing to vocalizations, animals communicate in a variety of ways and, at times, indicate their need for human assistance. Whether it is deterring visitors from feeding birds on the beach or detaching a pelican from fishing line in the mangroves, the program will cover wildlife rescue assessment, as well as handling techniques. Adults are $12; ages 4-12 are $7.

- Lunch & Learn with Dr. Barron from noon to 1:30 p.m.

Spend part of an afternoon on CROW's campus and join the hospital director for lunch. Learn about how CROW's work is vital to Southwest Florida and beyond. In addition to a boxed meal catered by the Sanibel Deli, hear wildlife patient stories and end the program with a behind-the-scenes tour of the hospital and rehabilitation grounds. Cost is $35 per person. Advanced registration required; to register, contact the Visitor Education Center at 239-472-3644 ext. 229 or reservations@crowclinic.org.

- Wildlife Walk with Rehabilitators and Staff from 2 to 3:30 p.m.

Southwest Florida is filled with fascinating wildlife, and CROW provides a unique opportunity to look into wildlife rehabilitation and meet the staff responsible for their care. Wildlife walks are the best opportunity for visitors to get an in-depth look into the inner workings of our hospital and the treatment process. The program has two parts: an introductory presentation covering our medical and rehabilitation methods; and a guided tour through treatment areas of the hospital, concluding on the rehabilitation grounds. Wildlife Walks take between one and two hours; a 45-minute presentation and a 45-minute tour. The program is open to all, but it is not recommended for children under the age of 13. Cost is $25 per person. Photography opportunity available following tour with Animal Ambassador. Advanced registration required; to register, contact the Visitor Education Center at 239-472-3644 ext. 229 or reservations@crowclinic.org.

- Patient Profiles: Virginia Opossums at 2 p.m.

Virginia opossums are the only marsupial, or pouched mammal, native to the United States. They are highly adaptable animals and can live in a variety of habitats, both natural and human made. Although it may not be obvious to some people, opossums are a unique member of Florida's wildlife, playing an important role in the function of a healthy ecosystem. Adults are $12; ages 4-12 are $7. One of CROW's Animal Ambassadors will be present.
