Walk on the wild side
Take a walk on the wild side and help out injured and orphaned B.C. wildlife on Sunday, Sept. 30 at Campbell Valley Regional Park at 12:15 p.m.
Put on your wildest walking gear and bring your friends, family members and your four-legged companions too for a nice five kilometre walk through the park and raise funds for Critter Care Wildlife Society — the Lower Mainland’s only rehabilitation centre for our native mammals.
Critter Care helps nearly 1,000 animals every year. This returned 16 bears back to the wild as well as several river otter and other animals. Three fawns rescued, one of them had to be rescued from the flooding waters off Brae Island, will be returned back to the wild as a herd when they lose their spots.
Fae was seen running around a flooded area of Derby Reach in June. She was seen to be in a panic.
When Critter Care arrived, the fawn was swimming.
One of Critter Care’s interns swam out and grabbed her. She suffered from mange but quickly healed and is now happy and healthy and getting ready to be released with her new family of Prince and Maple.
Come out for the light barbecue after the walk. There will be lots of treasures for sale, goodies and prizes too.
It costs $5 to register and that includes lunch.
Registration deadline is Sept. 18.
