Hope for Wildlife Society's Annual Open House 

The wildlife rehabilitation centre in Seaforth opens up its doors to celebrate.

The Hope for Wildlife Society's hosting its ninth open house this Sunday, and Hope Swinimer and the animals are waiting for your visit. "We'll have the wildlife garden open, the learning centre, the rooftop garden, the flight cage---the only area that's off limits is the white-tailed deer unit," says Swinimer, who runs the facility. The wildlife rehabilitation centre has been operating out of Seaforth since its first open house, and helps at least 1,100 to 1,200 birds and mammals every year across the province while working with their own medical team, the Dartmouth Vet Hospital and Metro Animal Emergency Clinic. "It really has grown," says Swinimer, thinking to her first years running the centre, when an open house meant about 100 people. Two years ago 2,200 people came, and with art displays, demonstrations, pony rides and a barbecue, Swinimer's hoping for another good turnout. And if the line-up of cars along Highway 207 looks too long, just keep an eye out for the shuttle---there'll be a van driving along the road, marked "Shuttle," picking up anyone who flags it down and bringing them to the open house.
