BIRD RESCUE TOUR 2017

The Windsor Square-Hancock Park  Historical Society

has arranged a private talk and tour of the International Bird Rescue Facility in San Pedro. This is an organization that helped to save the oiled birds from the Exxon Valdez spill, the explosion of Deepwater Horizon as well as many other disasters. They have rehabilitated many birds that have needed desperate help. You will hear about all this on our special day.

Saturday, October 14, 2017 @ 10:30 in the morning

3601 S. Gaffey Street – San Pedro, CA 90731

 

Free parking at the site – there is a long drive down the driveway

 

The WS/HPHS will be making a donation to the Facility. They do not need any Dawn soap but could use your old towels, pillow cases and sheets for bedding. No holes in them please – so the birds will not get their feet stuck.

If you wish to wander over to the Marine Mammal Rescue site next door – please do. They have baskets on the outside of the enclosures for donations. This is where you will see rescued seals and sea lions.

We will provide suggestions for places to have lunch at the site.

For questions send an e-mail to juanitakempe@gmail.com

Tickets $20 per member, children $10 – non-members $25. Checks must be received by October 9th
