Raising wild babies


The Wildlife Rehabilitators Association of Rhode Island (WRARI) needs your help with raising healthy, orphaned wild birds and animals! Each year, wildlife rehabilitators receive hundreds of orphaned baby animals and birds that must be raised to release age. As a result, a special level of licensing was created to allow trained individuals to assist. This in-depth course is designed to cover topics ranging from infant nutrition and feeding skills to housing and state regulations. Class space is limited so pre-registration is required.

WHERE: Rogers Free Library, 525 Hope St., Bristol

WHEN:6-8:30 p.m.; Monday and Tuesday, Feb. 10 & 11

COST: Course fee is $25.00 for members and $40.00 for non-members.

Jim McGaw

A lifelong Portsmouth resident, Jim graduated from Portsmouth High School in 1982 and earned a journalism degree from the University of Rhode Island in 1986. He's worked two different stints at East Bay Newspapers, for a total of 18 years with the company so far. When not running all over town bringing you the news from Portsmouth, Jim listens to lots and lots and lots of music, watches obscure silent films from the '20s and usually has three books going at once. He also loves to cook crazy New Orleans dishes for his wife of 25 years, Michelle, and their two sons, Jake and Max.
