COVID-19 Response
As we have officially been mandated to shelter in place, for those most helpless, BRC is their shelter. Though we have canceled our public education programs, our doors are still open to receive birds in need. We are implementing protocols adjusted to maintain social distancing.

Our work in providing emergency medical care for our native wild birds means we are an essential service. If you feel you have a bird in need, call us at 707/523-2473 first! We have a skeleton crew so, if needed, please leave a message and we will contact you as soon as possible.

Information has been changing quickly so for the latest on our updates and protocols join our email list. The signup form is on this page in the sidebar. On mobile just scroll down for it.

We hope you and your loved ones remain healthy during this time, and remember, we’re still here to help!
