Review for San Bernardino Mountains Wildlife Society, Lake Arrowhead, CA, USA
I first heard of Wildhaven Ranch, which is under the umbrella of The San Bernardino Mountains Wildlife Society, about 3 years ago. I saw a story about their first two bears and became interested in volunteering. I emailed back and forth with the Executive Director, Diane Dragotto Williams for some time before I finally made the long trek up the mountain to the facility. Now I make that trek almost on a weekly basis! I took the Wildlife Care Provider class and began helping clean and feed some of the resident animals. As we have all heard th saying
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
that I have been blessed with being allowed to interact with the educational animals ranging from foxes, raccoons, coyotes and the bears!
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
kind, compassionate and caring!
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
build a sanctuary for orphaned and rehabbed bears! Larger, more well equipped enclosres for the other animals. And it could build a building where I could spend the night and not sleep on a couch when I visit up there!
