"It’s just been amazing how generous people have been. It’s been warming our hearts," rehabber Helen Dyar told The Dodo. "We have gotten them mailed to us from as far away as Texas."
But now the center has a new (albeit more pleasant) sort of problem — what to do with the sudden surplus.
"We’re a rather small facility, and we actually have enough acorns now to meet our current needs," Dyar said. "We’ve begun to freeze them for the spring season, and to share them with other rehabbers in the area."
In other words, please stop sending in acorns.
