Hello, and welcome to TreeHouse Notebook!  My name is Jennifer, and I am the intern at TreeHouse Wildlife Center.  TreeHouse is a wildlife rescue and rehabilitation center located just off the Great River Road near Grafton, Illinois.  We are dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and release of injured and orphaned wildlife, and to raising awareness of environmental issues through education.  Each year, we take in hundreds of birds and mammals in need of assistance and help enable them to return to the wild.  Our new facility houses our hospital, our education center, and our non-releasable permanent residents on display to the public.

As an intern at TreeHouse, I have had the unique opportunity to experience all facets of the operation of a wildlife rehab facility.  In this blog, I will be sharing some of those experiences with you.  An ordinary day for me might include anything from building a new cage to retrieving an injured pelican from the middle of a lake.  Stick around to find out more about what’s going on at TreeHouse and read some amazing stories about our animals—and don’t forget to check out our website at www.treehousewildlifecenter.com for info about visiting or making a donation.
