2020 Baby Bird Feeding Program

After careful consideration, WINC’s summer Baby Bird Feeding Volunteer Program and orientations for the 2020 season are cancelled. Due to our limited staffing and the public health concerns regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, we feel this is the necessary decision in order to keep everyone safe and healthy. Our Baby Bird Feeding Volunteer Program consists of about 100 individuals from the age of 12 years up to 84 years of age and each one of you will truly be missed. For those volunteers who were looking to return for another season or a first timer interested in learning, we hope you will keep us in mind for the 2021 season. If anyone has questions regarding the Baby Bird Feeding Volunteer Program, please refer to our website or email Mitch Ruiz, the Baby Bird Feeder Volunteer Coordinator, at mruiz@helpingwildlife.org. We appreciate your continued patience and support while we continue to navigate this difficult...
