Spring Fling, Bloom Boom Flower Power Planting at Wildlife Care Association of Sacramento
SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - Wildlife Care Association of Sacramento is engaging ‘flower power’ to brighten the non-profit’s rehabilitation facility at McClellan Park. The state’s second largest volunteer wildlife rehab group is transforming the old USAF Radar dome it now calls home with the bright faces of sunflowers!
Volunteers are needed to help plant a sunflower garden as part of the WCA’s regular Spruce UP Saturday on March 17. With assistance from Woodland’s Tom Heaton, creator of fabulous hybrid seeds, his company Sunflower Selections will provide seed for the newest creation in White Sunflower hybrids and Yellow varieties to provide seeds for wildlife. Led by Sacramento’s own garden star, Plant Lady Marlene Simon will create a sunflower line garden in a day.
Spruce UP Saturday is the third Saturday of each month when volunteers join forces to build, repair and maintain the two and a half acre Wildlife Care Association site at 5211 Patrol Road, McClellan Park. The Bloom Boom flower power event will take place 12noon to 4pm on Saturday March 17 and volunteers can sign up at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Saving thousands of birds and small animals each year since 1975, the volunteer non-profit wildlife rehabilitation group depends on community support and care. 98% of wildlife given a second chance to live comes from caring hearts and willing hands of volunteers from across the region. These heroes of nature safeguard the environmental balance in returning birds and small animals to the Sacramento region to balance our quality of life. Injured, orphan and creatures displaced by human activity are brought to the facility each year to heal, grow and be released back to the wild.
