The program “Orphaned and Injured Wildlife: What to Know and What to Do” will be presented by Jamey Emmert, Wildlife Communications Specialist for the Ohio Division of Wildlife on Wednesday, May 4, 2016 beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the library’s Quaker Room located at 821 E. State St., Salem, Ohio.

Springtime is coming soon and with the spring season comes young wild animals. Many species of animals are raised by only one adult that may temporarily leave its offspring in search of the next meal. This often leaves well-meaning people wondering if they need to intervene with what seems to be an abandoned animal.

Learn more from ODNR Division of Wildlife staff about the lives of commonly encountered young wildlife including cottontail rabbits, fox and gray squirrels, raccoons, song birds, and white-tailed deer. The program will focus on knowing when and how to intervene to help wildlife if such actions are necessary.

Reserve your space either online at www.salem.lib.oh.us or by contacting the library at 330-332-0042 for this family-friendly educational program which is open to the public and free of cost to attend. Don’t miss this opportunity to increase your knowledge of the natural world around you. We look forward to seeing you at the library, your hometown place to Go and Grow!
