Come see us at Cranefest this weekend!

On Saturday, October 12th, our clinic manager Andrea will be hosting a Bird Center booth at Cranefest 2019! On Sunday, October 13th, our board member Bee and intern Dominick will be there. Please feel free to come by our booth! We can tell you about our season, our successes, and answer any questions you may have.

We often educate people about Sandhill Cranes, and we’ve done quite a few rescues. We have also been getting educational tips on them and other large waterfowl species from All Species Kinship (A.S.K.). Anything to help improve our rehabilitation skills on all flighted species is best for our Center!

A.S.K. will also be at the event, along with many other vendors and fun events! Please join us for a wonderful day of nature and wildlife. We hope to see you there!

We need your help for the move!

The Bird Center is also a city polling station and will be used for the election on Tuesday, August 6th. We need to move out of the Center for the election, and we need your help!

We will be moving the birds over to the Ann Arbor Animal Hospital on Sunday, August 4th at 11am and returning them to the Bird Center on Wednesday, August 7th at 11am.

On Sunday, August 4th, we will need 3-4 people to help transport birds and supplies, and another 4-5 people to help clean the Center. We will also need 1-2 trucks or large vehicles to move the larger enclosures.

On Wednesday, August 7th, we also need several volunteers to transport everything back to the Bird Center and help clean the room at the Ann Arbor Animal Hospital.

We could also use some help with a bit of gardening! If you would like to help tend to flowers and clean up the outside of the Center, please let us know!

If you would like to help out, please email birdteamvolunteer@gmail.com to let us know what days you are available to help. We will then provide you with more details as we get closer to the move. We appreciate your help!
