Vinegar Hill

This week we were fortunate to be able to attend the Hands-on Infant and Juvenile Squirrel Care Workshop held at Vinegar Hill Veterinary. Our instructor was Barbara Bellens-Picon, one of the top squirrel rehabbers/instructors in the country.

Now that Spring is here there will be, unfortunately, babies falling from trees. If for some reason their mothers don't pick them up and get them back into the nest, we need to rescue them and take care of them until they're big enough to be released back to the wild.

This workshop showed us how to care for and feed the babies. There will be another workshop this coming Tuesday, April 12. You can register here:
