The Suisun Marsh Natural History Association is a 501(c)3 non-profit volunteer organization, dedicated to the rescue of native California wildlife and to the preservation of the Suisun Marsh, working through the dual avenues of wildlife rescue & release and environmental education.
The Suisun Marsh Natural History Association operates the Sandra Emanuelson DVM Memorial Wildlife Center, which provides rescue, care and release back to the wild for injured and orphaned wildlife. Known also as the Suisun Wildlife Center, it began as a grassroots volunteer effort and still operates by dedicated volunteers today (must be age 18 or over). In existence since 1977, the Wildlife Center has released over 16,000 wild birds and animals back to the wild, with annual release rates as high as 73% in 2016. In addition to its wildlife care effort, the organization has an extensive environmental education program, serving over 300,000 children and adults since 1978. Volunteers have the opportunity to gain experience in both hands-on wildlife care and educational presentations. Come join the fun!
