The Coachella Valley Wild Bird Center is a non-profit corporation created for the care and rehabilitation of orphaned injured or sick native wild birds, with the ultimate goal of releasing them back into their habitats; to provide community education in the ways and needs of wild birds; to promote a deeper respect and understanding of the problems facing wildlife in an environment that is being altered by human activities.
Formed in 1986 and opened to the public in 1995, the Center has grown to accommodate an increasing number of wild birds from the Coachella Valley and beyond. Birds ranging in size from hummingbirds to pelicans and eagles move through the doors of this important rehabilitation center each year. The Center is open to the public free of charge, though voluntary contributions are welcome as the principal means of covering costs incurred to operate the facility.
