Mission

We foster healthy connections among people, wildlife and nature through nature education, wildlife conservation and a wildlife care hotline. Our goal is to connect or reconnect people to nature and to teach them how they can contribute in a positive way to improve their environment for humans as well as the native flora and fauna with which we share our environment.

Programs

We offer children's day camps, leadership training programs, after-school programs, child/parent activities, adult nature series, intensive courses for adults in ecology, wildlife conservation, raptor education, primitive skills, survival in the natural world, herbal/medicinal plants and others. Scholarships are given to children and adults in low economic situations to attend our programs. We operate a volunteer staffed wildlife hotline so citizens with injured wildlife or wildlife questions can speak with an actual person from dawn to dusk year-round. Injured or orphaned wildlife cases are referred to wildlife rehabilitators in the closest geographic area to the caller. Our third area of study is wildlife conservation. We are studying resident box turtles in our 100-acre park to discover more about their movements, food sources, hibernation sites and breeding opportunities. We are also beginning a citizen science project to identify the box turtles and their locations in the Triangle Region of North Carolina to better understand their challenges living in our world.
