Sonoma County Wildlife Rescue remains dedicated to our mission during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

If you are dropping off an animal in need, please contact us before arrival and follow all signage displayed at the center.
Let's bring learning outside! Come to our beautiful facility and see native wildlife in their natural habitat. Through observation and interactive presentations, your class will gain a greater understanding of local wildlife and their place in our community. We can do activities on a variety of subjects, including ecology, wildlife rehabilitation, and cohabiting peacefully with wildlife.
Each presentation at SCWR includes a tour of our Educational Wildlife Community. Our community is comprised of non-releasable wildlife in natural enclosures. Animals include mountain lions, coyotes, raccoons, and many more!
If you would like to sign up for one of our presentations, please call (707) 992-0274 or email us at email@example.com.
Unfortunately the standard SCWR tours are not wheelchair accessible, however we do have alternate Wheelchair friendly options.
$175 Groups of 25 or fewer people ( additional people are $5 per person)
Larger groups are welcome with at least a month's advance notice. If you have a larger group, you'll need to allot more time at the center. Please call 707-992-0274 so we can make a plan for your larger group.

Just like wildlife must adapt to the conditions that they are presented with in the wild, we have had to adapt to a new way of living during the COVID-19 Pandemic. While this illness has closed classroom doors, the education of our community's students continues thanks to dedicated teachers, through online learning. We want to do our part to help our educational community.
If you are not able to visit our beautiful facility, but still want to get your students enthused about their local wildlife, we do in-classroom presentations. Please note that we do not bring any live animals into the classroom. We find the animals do not enjoy being in a classroom and it is an artificial setting for seeing wildlife. We bring furs and bones for tactile learning and play games to reinforce our presentation's content.
$250 + travel fee for a 45 minute presentation for up to 30 kids. $5 for each additional child, maximum 40 children.
$350 + travel fee for a 1 hour assembly. Maximum 100 children.
Travel fee: $85-165 depending on distance from our site. Please call for details. (707) 992-0274
What bird is found on every continent besides Antarctica, feeds on dozens of rodents every evening, and makes a great foster parent for orphaned chicks? Barn Owls! Help your child and their entire school learn more about these incredible animals by scheduling a Barn Owl Maintenance Program presentation. Presentations are $200 and can be accompanied by a barn owl box installation for the school (additional fees apply). Call us at (707) 992-0274 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a presentation.
Presentations are one-hour long and include an interactive slideshow, exclusive videos, and engaging props. The presentation is designed to foster empathy for wildlife and spark scientific curiosity. We hear from schools that students spend the rest of the day excitedly talking about barn owls!
