Our New Banners!

Here is a photo of one of the new banners of East Valley Wildlife.  The banners are used when we attend events…and certainly draw the crowds.  Their professional ‘look’ includes some marvelous imagery, plus, of course, an appeal for ……MORE VOLUNTEERS! Our cute new logo takes center ‘pride of place’.

Easter Basket Bonanza

Our thanks to Epiphany Church for the opportunity to hold our Easter Basket sale again this year.  It was a wonderful event. The parishioners of the church also purchase baskets for their Child Crisis Center. The photo is only a small assortment of the baskets that were on sale.  Each basket is ‘handmade’ with a particular theme.  This year the “elephant” theme seemed to be popular.  There is no candy in the baskets, but they are filled with various assortments of stuffed toys, plastice eggs, games, novelty items, books and charming collectibles. Various price ranges were on offer, so everyone had the chance to bring home a favorite basket. Our thanks again to Epiphany Church and their wonderful work at the Child Crisis Center.

Hummingbird Festival – Sedona

For those of you who want to escape the summer heat, check out the first annual hummingbird festival in Sedona in August. Go to their website to learn more about the society and the event.  The dates are August 3,4,5. There will be presentations, tours, bird banding and the opportunity to watch as thousands of ‘hummers’ pass through on their migratory paths. The keynote speaker will be Dr. H. Ross Hawkins. Go to the website to learn more and to sign up for the events. There will be periodic reminders on this website for those who tend to forget things….like me!  The notice of this event came from our friends at WildWingRehab, who specialize in the rescue, rehab and release of hummingbirds and songbirds.


Spring is here and the newsletter is coming

The Spring issue of the East Valley Wildlife newsletter -Bird Tracks- will be winging its way into your mailbox shortly.  There will be plenty of helpful articles, including the great directory of other rescue organizations throughout the Valley.  The baby birds have started to arrive on volunteers’ doorsteps.  Our Director, Nancy, returned from her vacation and already had several doves brought to her for some TLC.  The photo below is Miss Puggy Wuggly, the armadillo – a popular addition to Lisa’s Creatures mix of animal ambassadors.  Just as a side comment, I am now the proud pet parent of another doggie rescue – Bert.  He is a handsome boy with plenty of character; a wonderful temperament and excellent “doggie” manners.  Makes
