Black Hawk Wildlife Rehab to present program at the Library
The Denver Public Library will host an educational program presented by Terese Evans of Black Hawk Wildlife Rehabilitation on Tuesday, August 9 at 1:30 p.m.

Black Hawk Wildlife Rehabilitation Project is a non-species, non-profit that has worked with the Cedar Valley and surrounding communities rehabilitating wildlife for 30+ years. They have been very active in Bremer County rescuing and rehabilitating foxes, owls, trumpeter swans, and raccoons among others.

Children and adults are welcome to attend and learn about the work this volunteer organization does to provide necessary care to injured, orphaned and otherwise impaired wildlife and release them back into the wild. Wildlife rehabilitators are individuals licensed by the State of Iowa to care for wild animals native to Iowa. Some rehabilitators work for rehabilitation centers, but most work out of their own homes.

Terese Evans is a master rehabilitator near Denver, with 25 years of experience and a lifelong interest in animals. She has a special interest in birds, particularly birds of prey. Opossums, bunnies and turtles are also dear to her heart. She primarily runs the volunteer hotline, with an average of 600 calls per year.

Evans will share stories of animals rehabilitated and offer information about the animals and the environment. There will also be an appearance by Spirit, an “educational owl” from BHWRP.

This is a free program, and the general public is welcome to attend.
