How does this Festival of Lights Help?

As I'm sure you are aware the recent storm has caused serious damage to the wildlife center. Enclosures were damaged, we lost our songbird release holding and the two critical care buildings were just too much for our single generator to handle.

All proceeds from our Holiday Festival of Lights are going to the much-needed repairs in addition to the purchase of buying a large permanent generator which can power all buildings and outside areas as needed. We were lucky that this didn't happen in the middle of the winter.

So again, thank you for supporting us.
