    The University of West Alabama’s College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics invites area students to the next in its series of Science Saturdays on March 11 from 9:30-11:30 a.m. at Bibb Graves Hall on the UWA campus.

    Alabama Wildlife Center (AWC) representatives will be on campus to explain to students their mission in wildlife rehabilitation. The AWC is Alabama’s oldest and largest wildlife rehabilitation facility, caring annually for almost 2,000 wild bird patients from more than 100 species.

    The workshop is offered free of charge to school children in grades 4-12. Spaces are limited, and registration is encouraged to reserve a seat. For more information or to register, email Rosie Campbell or call 205-652-3414.

    AWC is a nonprofit organization with a dual mission of providing medical and rehabilitative care for Alabama’s injured and orphaned native birds in order to permit their return to the wild, as well as educating people in order to heighten awareness and appreciation of Alabama’s native wildlife.
