Northwoods Wildlife Center celebrates 40th season with a baby shower

The Northwoods Wildlife Center is preparing for its 40th baby season by holding a baby shower. Spring has finally sprung and many of the hibernating mammals and reptiles are waking up from a very long winters nap. Raptors, songbirds, ducks, loons, herons, and geese have begun their migrations back to the Northwoods from their wintering habitats further south. Babies will soon be on the way.

As a result, the Northwoods Wildlife Center is preparing to care for hundreds of injured and orphaned wildlife patients they admit each year. Many of the infants require feeding every two hours, need special equipment and supplies, many hands and many hours.

The Center would also like to remind everyone that when what appears to be an orphaned animal is found, observe first prior to approaching. Often a mother will leave an infant in a "safe" place and return later. It is not uncommon to see wild infant animals alone, the mother is generally not far away and will return. If it appears the animal is indeed injured or orphaned, call the Center at 715-356-7400. Staffers will transport the animal or assist in a rescue. The Center is available for animal emergencies 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Baby Shower items may be dropped off anytime at Northwoods Wildlife Center, 8683 S. Blumenstein Road in Minocqua (across from Trigs 70 West Center) where a working wildlife nursery can also be viewed.
