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.

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...
