Adopt An Animal

Adopt-an-Animal

As a federally licensed wildlife rehabilitation and education facility, the Nature Center regularly takes in, rehabilitates and cares for native creatures. Our goal is to release healthy animals back into areas of good habitat. Some are unreleasable due to the nature of their injuries. The animals that we keep become part of our education programs to help further our mission of nurturing an appreciation of the environment.

You can help our rehabilitation efforts and our resident animals through our Adopt-an-Animal program.
