With the signing of a long-term lease, The Bird Rescue Center reached a major milestone in our relocation efforts.
- The new center will:
- Serve the needs of five-county area
- Treat and rehabilitate birds more effectively
- Expand our services and collaborations with other Bay Area wildlife facilities
- Provide programs that stimulate curiosity and motivate learning about our natural world
We have received pledges, grants, gifts, in-kind donations, and pro bono services in excess of $3.6 million.
We need an additional $3 million to complete this project. This will result in a modern avian hospital, aviaries for patients and resident education birds, an engaging and interactive educational facility, and bird-friendly gardens and greenhouses for aviary enrichment plants.
For more than forty years, The Bird Rescue Center has been caring for our native wild birds. We are committed to our next half-century of providing care and comfort.Your investment will create an unparalleled and sustainable community resource.
Your donations will help ensure that the 3,000+ birds we handle each and every year continue to receive the best possible care. You will also be supporting our 16 Resident Ambassador birds and our Community Education programs, which reached more than 47,000 children and adults last year with important lessons about climate change, our local environment, and cohabiting with native wild birds. We have one of the few Junior Volunteer programs in the County, and your financial support can help make sure that resource remains available to children between the ages of 13 and 18.
