It's time for WERC's 5th annual BOWL-a-thon!
Join the WERC Team for a fun filled afternoon of bowling to support W.E.R.C.
This event is open to bowlers of all ages and skill levels. You don't have to be a great bowler to win, prizes are awarded to the top three fundraisers!
Previous years' prizes have included a GoPro, Best Buy gift cards, movie passes, passes to our yearly Wildlife Fest, and lots of other goodies.
This year's event is sponsored in full but the Morgan Hill Bowl. That means 100% of the money raised will go towards helping work during our busiest time of the year, spring baby season. This spring fundraiser helps offset the cost of caring for the orphaned and abandoned wild babies that will soon be finding their way to WERC.

Spring is when birds, squirrels, and other animals are having their young. If you trim trees and shrubs during this time you risk injuring or killing young animals. Even if you trim around a nest you could be dooming the young to an early death by removing the cover the birds are hiding in which makes them easy targets for predators. The noise of the trimming equipment and the presence of people so close to the nest could also cause the parent to abandon the nest. Visit www.werc-ca.org to learn more.
Wildlife Fest 2017 was a huge success thanks to YOU!
