The Stanis­laus Wildlife Care Cen­ter cel­e­brates its an­niver­sary ev­ery fall with Day with Wildlife. This year it is their 33rd an­niver­sary. All are in­vited to come see some of their ed­u­ca­tional an­i­mals up close and per­sonal. There will be BBQ tri tip sand­wiches, hot dogs, ice cream sun­daes, face paint­ing, T-shirts for sale, raf­fle draw­ings, bake sale, kid’s crafts, and even wild barn owl pel­lets to dis­sect. There is no ad­mis­sion charge.

Raf­fle items can be found on the web site: Stanis­lausWildlife.org.

Day with Wildlife is set for Satur­day, Sept. 16 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Wildlife Cen­ter in­side Fox Grove Fish­ing Ac­cess, 1220 Geer Road, Hugh­son.

Come meet the volun- teers and em­ploy­ees, the peo­ple who care for all of the 2,000-plus in­jured and or­phaned an­i­mals they ad­mit each year. Also, meet the an­i­mal am­bas­sadors, an­i­mals that couldn’t be re­leased, and now live at the Stanis­laus Wildlife Care Cen­ter. Many of th­ese an­i­mals travel to schools to help stu­dents learn about Cal­i­for­nia na­tive wildlife.

An­i­mals, such as this baby screech owl, are among those be­ing cared for at the Stanis­laus Wildlife Carte Cen­ter, which will host its an­nual Day with Wildlife on Satur­day, Sept. 16.
