Wildlife Center Open House California Wildlife Center (CWC) in Monte Nido just hosted their annual open house. 800 visitors came to play games, have their face painted, build a birdhouse or other crafts, and to see animals of course. Wings of Discovery gave a presentation on raptors, featuring a magnificent red-tail hawk and a great horned owl.
The non-profit center, located on State Parkland off of Piuma Rd. rescues, rehabilitates over a hundred species of injured or orphaned wild animals. CWC employs methods that are optimum for the animals release back to their natural habitat. CWC takes responsibility for the protection of all native wildlife through rehabilitation, education and conservation.
Attendance to the open house has steadily increased over the years, according to Cindy Reyes, CWC Administrative Director.
