EARTH FRIENDLY FRIDAY
Featured Event — 

Bird Safe and Bird Friendly

May 12, 2017 - Social time, 6:30 (snacks welcome) Program, 7:00


We all enjoy birds when hiking, hanging out in our backyard or just watching them from our windows, but are we propagating or destroying the proper environment for them to survive? How can we prevent window hits, cat attacks and other bird killers? Can wind and solar power be bird friendly? What is the right thing to do when you find a sick or injured bird? Learn how to create a better feeding station and how to save money on your bird food bill and still attract birds.

    If possible, please bring a roll of paper towels or donate a box of tissues to help save some baby birds this spring. 

    Maureen Eiger is the Director of Help Wild Birds, Roanoke’s only nonprofit wildlife rehabilitation organization that exclusively handles migratory birds. She receives hundreds of bird calls a year from people all over the country asking for advice to help solve their “bird problems" or answer bird related questions.  She is a State and Federally Permitted Bird Rehabber and contributing writer to the North American Bluebird Society Journal, The Roanoke Star newspaper, various Audubon and bird club newsletters and the blog 10,000 Birds.  Previously Vice President of the Roanoke Valley Bird Club, she is a longtime RVBC Board Member.       Web page www.helpwildbirds.org
