Critter Care Wildlife Society will host their annual Walk-a-Thon on Oct. 4 from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Campbell Valley Park, 481 8 Ave. in Langley.
Critter Care specializes in the treatment, care and release of sick, injured and orphaned native mammal species of B.C., and is one of only four bear rehabilitation facilities in the province.
They serve creatures from tiny chipmunks and native squirrels through mink, weasels, marmots, rabbits, opossums, skunks, raccoons, beavers, coyotes, deer, otters, bobcats, the occasional lynx or mountain lion on their way to the big cat rescues – and lots of bears.
In addition to rehabilitation, they are involved in community-based education programs at primary, secondary and college levels.
They work to educate the public through involvement in civic groups, seniors homes and assist other wildlife management organizations, and offers internships to 25 students from around the world every year.
The Oct. 4 fundraiser includes a barbecue provided by the Langley Lions Club and prizes for the top fundraisers.
