Oaken Acres seeking wildlife volunteers

SYCAMORE – Oaken Acres Wildlife Center in rural Sycamore is looking for volunteers to care for orphaned wildlife.

Oaken Acres Wildlife Center, 12140 Aldrich Road, expects to receive 85 percent of the animals it will care for this year between May 1 and August 1, according to a news release.

Most volunteers will have hands-on opportunities such as feeding, cleaning and preparing food, but reception and phone-answering duties also are available. By law, anyone working with wildlife must be at least 18 years old.

For information or to get involved, email director of operations Christy Gerbitz at christy@oakenacres.org with your name, phone number, email address and your area of interest. Areas of interest include mammal babies, songbirds, office, construction and landscaping or fundraising. The organization’s website is www.oakenacres.org.
