Getting to The BRC, current construction update:

WESTBOUND: Chanate Road will be closed 24/7 beginning Monday, May 17th, and continuing until September 2021. Anyone coming to Bird Rescue from the Mendocino Avenue area will be able to drive eastbound on Chanate Road as usual. There may be occasional delays due to construction equipment but since there will be no westbound traffic the delays should be short.

If you’re coming to Bird Rescue from the east side of Santa Rosa, you will be able to drive westbound on Chanate to County Farm Drive and then return eastbound as usual.

When leaving Bird Rescue, you must take a detour. From County Farm Drive (BRC’s driveway), turn right to go east to Parker Hill Road. Turn left and go north all the way to Fountaingrove Parkway. Turn left on Fountaingrove, then west to Mendocino and from there, to wherever you wish to go.

Remember, wild birds are not pets. They are naturally frightened of humans and it is also against the law to keep them in your home without a permit. As a rescuer of an injured or orphaned wild bird you play a very important role. It is essential that the bird receives professional care as soon as possible. With fractures and breaks, the longer the injury remains untreated, the more difficult it is to fix. Particularly with young birds, dehydration and starvation are quick to set in… read more →
