Nancy Kasinski, handler with Oaken Acres of Sycamore, holds Hamlet, a barred owl Wednesday in Montgomery Hall’s auditorium. Christy Gebritz, director of operations at Oaken Acres asserts, said if an injured animal is found in the wild to call a shelter immediately and keep the animal in a warm, dark, quiet space and not to feed it or give it water. Students can learn more about caring for wildlife with Oaken Acres by volunteering or interning with the organization.
