This #WellnessWednesday we want to share a story that came to us by way of the Highland house on Springbrook’s main campus. Last month, staff at Highland found a dehydrated baby fawn crying outside of the residence. The staff acted quickly and contacted the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC). Bobbie Martindale, Assistant Residential Program Director of the GEMS/Golisano program, along with her son, Ethan, came up to campus and delivered the fawn to the Johnson Wildlife Rehabilitation location in Laurens. Ethan named the fawn, Gem, after the GEMS program at Springbrook. A huge shout-out to Logan Kabana, Tim Deane, and Rochelle Bartow for spotting this sweet little girl fawn. Gem is doing well and growing fast. Highland has a mascot!
Another special shout-out goes out to the Team Fawn Wildlife Sanctuary! Thank you very much for your support!
