I have been lucky enough to volunteer at Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care for the past 5 years. I enjoy working at the center where I assist in caring for the animals hands-on and working with Education and Community Outreach group where we have the opportunity to get out and teach the community about what we do, why it is important and how to co-exist with the abundant wildlife in our unique area.
Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care (LTWC) is an independent, nonprofit volunteer organization whose function is to raise, rehabilitate and release orphaned and injured wild birds and animals. LTWC operates under permits issued by California Fish & Game and the United States Department of the Interior & Wildlife Service. No fee is charged for any bird or wild animal brought to the center, nor is any wild animal refused care.
From a handful of people in 1978 with an idea to help wildlife in their area, LTWC has grown to an organization that now provides a service to more than nine counties in California and Nevada surrounding the Lake Tahoe region.
