Foraging for Wild Food Items
Foraging for certain things that can be found in nature is an amazingly wonderful way to donate to help our center.
We are always in need of foods found in nature. It not only allows us to teach the young animals what their natural food source looks like. It also gives us peace of mind knowing that each animal's rehabilitation diet is not going to stray too far from what they are used to in a wild setting.
Some things we can use:
This is a wonderful resource we use, especially in the springtime for our baby ducks. It is super important to make sure any collected duckweed is from a natural water source free of pesticides and chemicals.
Collecting invasive apple snails helps out the native ecosystem in addition to helping us feed our snail-loving Limpkins.
Once they start falling, we can always use acorns. They are a wonderful natural food source for so many wild animals.
Collecting acorns can help us feed our squirrels and provide an occasional snack for some of our other animals like raccoons, mice, and rats.
Crafters & Carpentry
Are you handy or crafty? We have a handful of projects for those who are capable of constructing some animal-specific items. See Below.

Sometime we receive an orphaned animal that is alone. We utilize small stuffed animals for small mammal companions. We are always looking for talented crochet and knitting volunteers.
