Program: Caught Between a Pandemic and a Derecho: The Iowa Wildlife Center Rises From the Chaos with Marlene Ehresman. What happens to a wildlife rehabilitation and conservation education organization when two disasters collide? Double chaos. From a double-dose of bats in our care to a quadrupled number of phone calls after an inland hurricane (once the power was back on) to volunteers shifting in and out of quarantine, the Iowa Wildlife Center humans were given lessons in humility, resilience, healing, and belief in our capabilities. Come along for the ride, and take a peek at some wonderful changes just around the bend. Be sure to sign your ticket for door prizes, and buy your card for the 50/50 Raffle to win CASH!
