WV Raptor Rehab Center - needs help

Postby deizelsmommy on Sat Dec 10, 2011 9:58 am

Good morning Fellow Magpi's
The WVRRC is in need for some volunteers and quickly. We have just about a month left to create and move the center to a new location.
On Dec. 1st we were told we needed to vacate the premises that we have been housed on for decades. The Center has around 250 acres on Bunner's Ridge in Fairmont but the facility has not been started yet, due to we thought we had time to do as the funds became available.

The Center is asking for any help it can get. This weekend, we are working on the fence to protect the area where the birds will be housed and hopefully, starting on their flight cages. The building where the ICU and everything else will be housed, should be started in about 2 weeks. The new building should go up really fast due to is it a metal building.
Once the building is up, we will need to finish, insulate, put electric, plumbing, etc so the non-feathered animals can be a little comfortable. :???:

Please, if you can donate any of your time to help these guys. It would be greatly appreciated. We will need people to finish the inside of the building, help build the flight cages and then also to move the equipment and supplies from the old to the new location.
Just let me know your email, phone numbers and we will let you know when we are working and on what. I understand it is Christmas but we really need help.

The Center is a non-profit organization so everything you spend (gas, food, etc) or donate will be tax deductible.
If you would like to know more about the center, please visit our webpage at http://WWW.WVRRC.ORG.
Questions, please let me know.
Thank you,
Sheila

When you say this weekend, are you talking about tomorrow, Sunday, or are you thinking of next weekend, say Saturday the 17th?
I have a few hours available if you mean next Saturday. On Sunday I already have plans.

We are currently working this weekend. I am sure we will be working weekends until it is completed.
Tomorrow, Tom and I will be cutting down about 25 trees to make way for the flight cages. They will be digging the holes for the fence posts (high tensel wire) for the electric fence and throughout the week, we will be there putting them in and getting them squared away.

Just let me know what times you are available and we will let you know what we will be working on at that time.
Hope this helps.

This weekend we will be working on clearing some more trees and setting posts for the flight cages. They have a dingo with an auger so the hard work will be done by machine.

We would like to get as much done as possible, as the weather cooperates.

If I lived closer I would try to help. A worthy cause and I eat this kind of work up, but I can't be there.

I might be able to help out for a few hours Saturday. I have to run to Fairmont anyway.

Thank you everyone! It means alot.
I will keep a look on the weather and let you know what time we will be there and what we should be working on since we will have some help.
With this rain your feet will get muddy and the location is not graveled yet, so 4wheel drive will be a plus. I can meet anyone if you want a ride.

Sorry.
The coords for the location are:
39 27.602
80 01.860
We will be there at 9:30am.

Mostly going to be cutting trees and stringing wire for the new fence.
We will be starting the new building next week so we have to get as much done as possible now.

Parking is going to be tight due to the condition of the new location.
When you see the sign for the super tight left turn, we will be parking on the right there.

Thanks!
