Important update: Our room block at the Hilton Garden Inn in Troy is sold out! However, the hotel is working with us to help our attendees find other accommodations for the same price within the area. If you’d like to stay in this alternative group, please call the Best Western Plus at Franklin Square Inn Troy/Albany at (518) 274-8800 and ask for a room in the NYSWRC block.

Otherwise, you can go ahead and book on your own at a different hotel, Airbnb, etc. Another nearby option is Courtyard by Marriot, Albany/Troy Waterfront.

*If you’d still like to dine with us, you must purchase the commuter meals at the same time as your registration. (They are the same price they would have been with a hotel package.)*

There are also many more hotels near the airport, if you don’t mind a short commute. Check Hotwire, Expedia,, or your favorite travel site for best prices. There are also many Airbnbs in Troy with very affordable rates.

Culminating its year-long efforts to support the rehabilitator in the field, NYSWRC sponsors an Annual Wildlife Rehabilitation Seminar, a dynamic, weekend-long educational event designed to help the beginning and advanced rehabilitator, and interested veterinarian.

With in-depth programs staged by Wildlife Rehabilitation experts from throughout the US and abroad, typical subject areas include:

  • Nutrition/Husbandry
  • Diseases
  • Medical Management/Medications
  • Rehabilitation Techniques
  • Basic Workshops/WetLabs

Hosted by rehabilitators, for rehabilitators, the weekend offers participants the unique opportunity to communicate their interests, share experiences, and voice concerns.

The NYSWRC Seminar also provides an opportunity to take the Department of Environmental Conservation RVS (rabies vector species) course required for individuals to rehabilitate raccoons, bats and skunks.
