One of the favorite aspects of our wildlife mission is the variety of animals that enter our clinic each year.
Initially, we thought this youngster might be a rare (for Michigan) Black Vulture due to his small size.
He is, in fact, a Turkey Vulture with a very odd-shaped head and, despite having perfect wings, he will not fly.
His next visit to VCA Countryside Animal Hospital for a full head radiograph and eye check to see if we can get this “handsome” fellow airborne! Stay tuned for further updates. Thank you all for your continued support of our wildlife efforts!

Howell Nature Center

This week we are highlighting Evin Luehr, one of our amazing Nature Educators! Evin is a graduate of Virginia Tech with a degree in Wildlife Conservation, and started her tenure at Howell Nature Center as an intern in our Wild Wonders Wildlife Park. Now she lends her talents to our educational & recreational programming, excursion camp, hosting our many school & retreat groups, and training our wildlife ambassadors. She can truly do it all!

When she isn't working, Evin loves to spend time outside and go backpacking. She brings her love of nature and passion for the outdoors into her work and we are fortunate to have her on the team! Thank you for always giving it your all, Evin!
