Living With Wildlife

EASTERN SIERRA WILDLIFE CARE OFFERS WORKSHOP ON LIVING WITH WILDLIFE

submitted by ESWC

Eastern Sierra Wildlife Care will hold a free workshop on “Good Relations with Our Wild Neighbors” on Wednesday, May 27, at The Imagination Lab, 621 W Line St (across from Dwayne’s), Suite 204 (upstairs). The 90-minute session will begin at 6:30 PM.

Our prolonged drought is forcing an increasing number of wild animals to move closer to human habitations as they search for food and water. Most residents of the Eastern Sierra share their home territory with wild birds, mammals and/or reptiles at some times and to differing degrees; human-wildlife conflicts—such as a striped skunk digging up your lawn for earthworms and grubs or rabbits foraging in your garden—are on the increase. Problems such as birds hitting windows or getting trapped in buildings have also become more frequent.

Eastern Sierra Wildlife Care is experienced in handling hundreds of “living with wildlife” calls annually. The workshop will give ample time for questions and discussion. Consultants from ESWC will offer humane, non-lethal methods to reduce conflicts and resolve problems, examine the impact of new state laws concerning trapping and relocation, and provide counsel for your particular problem. Learn simple, inexpensive ways to reduce unwanted visitors from your garden or save birds from dying from window strikes.
Call Cindy or Kelly at ESWC, 760-872-1487 for information or to reserve a space for the workshop.

NIH honors Clara Armstrong

NIH Auxiliary pay tribute to Clara Armstrong

A memorial plaque honoring Clara Hofer Armstrong, a 22-year member of the Northern Inyo Hospital Auxiliary, was recently unveiled at the hospital’s Healing Garden before Armstrong’s family, friends and fellow Auxiliary members.

Armstrong handled several Auxiliary jobs including maintaining the archives, serving on the auditing and bylaws committee, working disaster drills, giving hospital tours and serving as a model in a fashion luncheon. One of Armstrong’s favorite jobs was working in the Auxiliary’s gift shop.

Instrumental in raising money to help the Auxiliary purchase the ABUS (Automated Breast Ultrasound) mammography machine, Armstrong took pride in knowing the Bishop was one of the few hospitals in the country to have this machine. In all, the Auxiliary donated $45,000 toward the machine’s purchase.

Armstrong’s vibrant personality balanced her dedication to the all-volunteer Auxiliary, and that as much as her work, cemented her place in the Auxiliary’s history and hearts. “Clara was admired by Auxiliary members and always returned the love,” said Judy Fratella, Auxiliary president. “No one ever heard a harsh word about her or from her.”

The Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 8988 was on hand for the ceremony as well since Armstrong served as a United States Army nurse during World War II.  Armstrong died last September at the age of 97.   Members from Armstrong’s family in attendance included her daughters Marjorie Parsons and Marilyn Jackson, and their families. Armstrong’s son, James, who lives in New York, was present in spirit.
