Each summer, an average of 1500 baby birds are brought in by caring individuals and families. Since 2001, Baby Bird Volunteers have provided comprehensive onsite care for baby birds. With so many baby birds vying for attention, we are always looking for caring volunteers to help us with this huge endeavor at our Hammerly location.
Email the Baby Bird Program Coordinator for any questions or concerns: firstname.lastname@example.org.
