2016 is now behind us. It has been an incredible year with its many highs and lows. ARC grew tremendously this year with the help of our local Eagle Scouts, City of Apopka, Apopka High School, Wekieva High School, and University of Central Florida students, and the many locals who helped report/rescue many birds.
We also had a record number of volunteer hours this year with 58 volunteers and 6867 hours. Happy New Year!!!
Our volunteers make a difference! They take on responsibility, challenges and demands they would not encounter outside their personal and professional lives.
We all come together on a day like Owl Fest, with smiles on our faces and raptors in our hands.
In May, a little Barred owlet was brought to us. Falling onto the ground, unable to get up, it was attacked by a raccoon. It's left eye was swollen shut and it also sustained a fractured mandible (jaw).
He stole our hearts and everybody here wanted to be part of this little guys rehabilitation, cutting up his food and feeding it to him. We knew that his eye would need to be removed. Many thanks to Dr. Rubinstein at Park Avenue Animal Hospital in Apopka, who removed the infected eye.
September 2nd we will reopen.
Come out and meet Patch, our new Educational Ambassador!
