We arrived at Zoar State Forest and were a little early, so we stood around for a bit, while everyone who wanted to see the release arrived. Once everyone was present, Wildlife Center President Ed Clark drove his truck out into the middle of an old cornfield owned by the forestry department, and opened the back of the truck. Ed then gave us some information on how the Wildlife Center was started, some of the work done at the Center, and where this Bald Eagle was rescued.

Editor’s note: The Wildlife Center features many patient stories in the “Critter Corner” portion of the website – but these are only a few of the thousands of cases the Wildlife Center treats each year. Each animal has its own unique story, and this story is one of a Mallard duck with which animal care volunteer Carol was particularly involved! After she excitedly shared her release story with us last week, we asked her to write our next blog entry!
In August of 2012, I got a message on my Facebook page inviting me to Poland to speak at two related conferences which were scheduled to take place in just six weeks. The first conference, called Konkordia III, was to be a gathering of NGOs (non-governmental organizations) for the purpose of increasing and enhancing their effectiveness and efficiency. The second gathering, called the European Forum for New Ideas (EFNI), was a much larger conference; the gathering included NGOs, private industry and business sector, and government institutions.
I’m glad you’ve stumbled across this new feature of the Wildlife Center’s website – it must mean you’re taking time to explore! We’re extremely excited to launch the new-and-improved website. While we started the re-design process in April, this new website has been an even longer time coming.
