We’re looking to raise $2,000 in order to build new animal displays for our animals friends in our Discovery Room!

Because our older displays were in pretty bad shape, we had to remove them this year and haven’t been able to replace them since then.

Examples of animals being displayed would be reptiles and amphibians such as snakes, turtles, tarantulas, lizards, salamanders, and frogs.

Our new display cases will be custom-built by our Grounds and Facilities Manager, and will be visited daily by our preschoolers, summer campers, and casual visitors!

The cost to build these display cases includes locally-sourced lumber, plywood, hinges, paint, glue, and a lock:

  • Lumber & Plywood 2x4s: $1500
  • Hinges, paint, screws, glues, lock: $500

We firmly believe that interaction with our live animals instills a sense of wonder and connection with the natural world. There’s a saying that “you protect what you love”, and these animals help create a love of the natural world, which helps breed the next generation of environmental activists.
