Wildlife First Responders

Our 2019 Wildlife First Responder class will be held Saturday, Feb. 23rd, 9am-4pm at Allegheny College in Meadville, PA!

You are welcome to return for a refresher, even if you have taken the course before, but need to call the center to let us know so we have an idea of how many to expect. ($10 for lunch for returning participants.) Your friends or family may be interested in taking the class as well!

Have you ever wished you’d known how to handle a wildlife emergency? A baby rabbit caught by a cat? A hawk hit by a car on a roadside? Ducklings stranded away from their mother? Our 2019 Wildlife First Responder class will be held Saturday, February 23. Tamarack’s live ambassador raptors and opossum will be available for participants to meet during the class.

This course will teach you when to intervene and when not to, and how to capture, stabilize and transport injured wildlife to a rehabilitator. In addition to learning how to respond when encountering wildlife in need, past participants have gone on to become phone helpline volunteers, transporters and onsite volunteers.

The course cost is $40 and includes lunch. Registration forms can be downloaded at https://tamarackwildlife.org/wildlife-first-responders-class/ or call our center at 814-763-2574 to request a form.

Those wishing to volunteer answering phone calls on our helpline will receive a rebate of $20 when they begin volunteering in that capacity following the course.


Tamarack Wildlife Center is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3)corporation.
