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.

CLICK HERE to download and print the Injured Animal Resource List.

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.
