Trout Lake Nature Center’s
Injured or Pest Wildlife Resources
TLNC is not permitted or licensed to work with injured wildlife but we maintain a list of contacts that work with injured wildlife in the area.
You may try to contain an injured bird in a paper bag or box. Close the bag or box securely so it doesn’t escape to a place where it can’t be caught. Place the bag or box in a quiet, dark place away from extreme heat or cold. DO NOT offer the bird food or water. If you want to rehabilitate an animal yourself every animal except squirrels require a permit. TLNC does not rehab animals because we don’t have the correct permits or knowledge but we do try to connect you with legitimate rehabilitators.
