Weekend Adventurer: Open House at the OWL Rehabilitation Centre in Delta, British Columbia

Delta, British Columbia is known as the wintering grounds for hundreds of Birds of Prey ranging from Owls, to Eagles, to Hawks and many more varieties. Delta is also home to the Orphaned Wildlife (OWL) Rehabilitation Centre which is a non-profit organization which provides injured Raptors with expert medical help and rehabilitation. This weekend (April 17th to 18th, 2010) the Centre will host the Annual Open House where visitors can see buildings used by the Centre to help birds recuperate and possibly see one of these majestic creatures released back into the wild!

Aerial View of the OWL Rehabilitation Centre in Delta.The Orphaned Wildlife (OWL) Rehabilitation Centre in Delta is one of the most important non-profit organizations in the Province. Focusing on injured birds - and specializing in Birds of Prey which are found throughout British Columbia, especially in the winter months - OWL works to rehabilitate these birds, release them into the wild (aside from those which are too injured which instead are given a permanent home at the Three Snowy Owls which are permanent residents at the
Rehabilitation Centre in Delta.Centre) and educate the public on these amazing avians.

Open to visitors during the weekends in the winter and daily in the summer (July to August), OWL has twenty permanent resident birds of varying species on site for people to see and hear about their stories ranging from Turkey Vultures to Owls to Eagles. Usually visitors just tour the bird cage area with a volunteer, however, this weekend they are opening their doors for its Annual Open House which Peregrine Falcons at the OWL Rehabilitation Centre in Delta.allows people to see almost all the facilities on site which are usually closed to the public.Raptor Release.

  • Dates: April 17th - 18th, 2010
  • Location: 3800 - 72nd Street
  • Times: 10:00am - 3:00pm

The OWL Rehabilitation Centre also takes the opportunity to potentially release one of its rehabilitated guests back into the wild to show visitors the importance of their work to provide a place for injured Birds of Prey to recuperate.

If you want to attend this once a year event please try to donate something on their wish list (OWL is looking for Dawn Dish soap, AA batteries, Canadian Tire money... a full list can be viewed on their website) or donate to make sure injured Raptors have a place to heal as the Government has cut off funding to help these beautiful creatures.
