Wildlife Rehabilitation/Nature Resources

The Wildlife Rehabilitation Program serves as a great compliment to the mission of Waterford Country School. The Program provides a model for children in treatment as they observe animals coming to a nurturing environment and being released into the wild.

What does the Wildlife Rehabilitation and Nature Resources Program consist of?

  • A wildlife rehabilitation center, a Federal and State licensed facility which offers a safe and humane haven where care is provided for sick or injured wild animals
  • A Children’s Farm Tour and Mobile Farm Presentations which include a variety of tame animals, from rabbits and llamas to snakes and exotic birds.
  • A mapped nature trail
  • A greenhouse

What do I do if I find a sick or injured animal?

Waterford Country School is able to help, simply call 442-9454 x 270 and explain the situation. A licensed animal rehabilitator will access the situation and provide instructions.

How do I schedule a farm or Nature Center Program?

Individuals and groups are invited to contact the Experiential Education Center to discuss programs that are available for community participation. Interested groups should call 442-9454 x 270.

“The WCS Farm Fund is our future”.

Earnings from the principal of the “Farm Fund” will be used to support the general operations of the Rick McPherson Outdoor Education Center.

Our programs provide children, youth and families opportunities to experience and learn about the outdoors, fosters a love and appreciation of nature.

To sustain our programs, we need your help!
