Fundraising- Phase 1

Most of Phase 1 is complete! This building was made possible by the support of our incredible donors! But we aren't done yet! We have a little ways to go to reach our total 4.8 million. Please contact us if you have any questions. Feel free to fill out a Pledge Card below and send it to our main office, or choose the PayPal option and support us online.

Once we have completed fundraising for Phase 1, we will begin fundraising for Phase 2. Phase 2 consists of small projects/additions that were original put on hold during Phase 1. One of those projects is to move our feathered Education Ambassador, Blue (American Kestrel) to a brand new outdoor mews that will be located next to the building for the public to view.
