Mountain Avian Rescue Society garage sale

The baby bird season is in full swing at the Mountain Avian Rescue Society.

“Already we have had ducklings, goslings and robins come through our doors. As the caseload increases the demand upon our volunteers also increases and it takes funds to care for all the new arrivals at the wildlife centre located on Headquarters Road,” said MARS manager and founder Maj Birch.

“We still need to continue to provide care for wildlife brought into our old wildlife centre. In order to provide continuous care here while building a new centre there we are planning several fundraising efforts.”

MARS has a crowdfunding campaign – MAYDAYforMARS.causevox.com – to help raise the money needed to build a new hospital on the new MARS property.

On Saturday, MARS will host a garage sale at its new location at 6817 Headquarters Road.

“After our open house in April we still have boxes of books left over and many wonderful plants donated to us by Outback Nursery,” said Birch.

“This and much more is available and now the volunteer elves are busy collecting even more items for this garage sale.”

The sale runs from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Contact MARS at 250-337-2021 or info@wingtips.org to donate items to the sale.
