Wetlands and Wildlife Care Center
This facility, completed in March 1997, was designed to care for up to 400 oiled birds in the event of a spill in Southern California. Funds from the OWCN were used to construct a 2,625 square foot building containing areas for bird intake, holding, washing, drying, and recovery, as well as a series of 6 large and 4 small pens with pools for bird recovery. Additional facilities on site are available for education and office space. During non-spill periods, the facility is used by the Huntington Beach Wetlands Conservancy for wildlife rehabilitation and education.
