Exciting news on the OWCN home-front – our own Emily Whitmer was nominated for, and won, a 2013 Citation of Excellence award from the UC Davis Staff Assembly! These awards go to UC Davis staff who have shown outstanding achievement in general contributions, campus service, or supervision. Congratulations to Emily from the whole OWCN team!
Registration is now open for our upcoming live webinar, Avian Cleaning, which will cover the stages and techniques of washing and rinsing oiled birds.
