Please note our new open and close dates for 2019. We will be opening May 16th, 2019 and closing Labour Day Monday. We decided to modify our open/close dates due to the annual challenge from losing all our summer student staff at the end of August combined with increasing workloads helping injured birds.
The difficulty for our organization is that we need a rotating staff of at least 12 trained employees to keep the Centre visitor-ready on a daily basis. Once school starts after Labour Day Monday, we go from a staff of 12 to only 3 employees, which is not sufficient to keep the Centre running.
We are still available year round to help anyone who has discovered an injured hawk, falcon eagle or owl. If anyone has any questions, please call us at 403-345-4262.
