For many years our family operated a wildlife rehabilitation facility near Golden. We were able to rescue many birds and animals. The majority of our cases were birds of prey.
Thankfully, since our retirement, the Invermere Vet Clinic has managed to build a wonderful flight cage and they now rehabilitate these types of birds.
Recently, Sandy Mittgaard, called us for help with a starving Great Horned Owl that she found in her backyard. We were able to take the owl to Invermere where it received excellent care. A few weeks later we released the owl here in Golden.
It is my hope that everyone with a love and appreciation for the beautiful birds in our valley will support the facility in Invermere. Please send donations to Project Take Flight, Box 2004, Invermere B.C. V0A 1K0.
