By Barry Eberling Daily Republic

SUISUN CITY - The Wildlife Center next week will begin teaching prospective volunteers how to care for injured and orphaned creatures.

Classes will be 7- 9 p.m. Feb. 19, Feb. 21, Feb. 26 and Feb. 28. The center receives more than 200 species of birds and animals. Spring is a particularly busy time, with volunteers caring for orphaned baby birds.

People who are members of the nonprofit Suisun Marsh Natural History Association pay a $6 book fee for the classes. Non-members must join at a cost of $15 for individuals or $25 for families in addition to the book fee.

The Wildlife Center is located at 1171 Kellogg St., near the Suisun City boat ramp. For more information or to register for the classes, call 429-4295.
