Snowy Owl To Be Released

On March 8th Prairie Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre (PWRC), Winnipeg’s premier facility for healing and releasing injured wildlife, will release a female snowy owl into the wild. General public and media are invited to attend.

This snowy owl was hit by a car near the Stonewall area on Nov 26, 2011 and was brought to PWRC with an injured hip. After 3 months of care and rehabilitation, she is ready and anxious to take flight again and resume her winter foraging before migrating north later in March.

The release will take place in Quarry Park, near the Quarry Park Heritage Art’s Centre, Stonewall’s brand new premier cultural facility and home to the Quarry Park Interpretative Centre.

 Stonewall Mayor, Ross Thompson, a former biologist, will have the honor of releasing the snowy owl. Come and witness PWRC making a difference one wild life at a time.
