Baby Season Is Upon Us!

The new season started early this year.  Baby bunnies were arriving.  Now the baby birds arrive for our volunteer to rescue and rehab. From now until the end of summer will be the busiest time for our volunteers.  We also had our fund raiser, The Easter Basket Bonanza this past Sunday.  We make Easter Baskets and sell them at The Epiphany Church Methodist each year.  The members of the church also buy baskets to donate to the Child Crisis Center.  The baskets this year were wonderful, each one with a unique theme and filled with stuffed animals and toys.  We also encourage people at this time of year to “Get Stuffed!”.  Rather than buying live chicks and ducklings for the Season, we ask that they gift stuffed toys instead.  A live baby chick or duckling makes a BAD gift.  They grow up quickly and cannot be released, since they are too tame and cannot fend for themselves on a lake.  A baby duckling will never be “adopted” by another duck!
