The annual Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Minnesota (WRC) open house in Roseville takes place this Sunday, February 2nd from 12 – 4 pm. (Yes, that’s Super Bowl Sunday, but you can stop by before the game starts!)
The Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Minnesota does amazing things, and this is an opportunity to get a closer look. You’ll have a chance to meet the staff, get a look behind the scenes a bit and see how they help sick, injured and orphaned wild animals.
Spread the word, it’s nearly here: Our annual open house where you can “admit” a stuffed animal patient and learn what’s wrong with it by visiting with our medical team. You’ll have a chance to look at radiographs and see creepy crawly parasites in our microscope station. Last year more than 500 people visited with us that day!
So before you head out to any Super Bowl activities, bring the kids, grandkids and anyone else who would like to learn more about one of the nation’s busiest wildlife hospitals. Remember, per state regulations we will not have actual animals on display.
We’re asking for donations of large, full-size bath towels that day. They can be used or new, stained, or even with crazy patterns on them. Just no fringed edges or holes in them. We’ll collect the towels in our front lobby area. Thank you for providing cozy and safe beds for our patients!
And, a special bonus: The Harriet Alexander Nature Center, located behind our building, is also hosting an open house that day. Be sure to stop by and learn about all the great programs they offer!
Free parking is available in all the lots on Dale Street.
