In-kind Donations

We more than happily accept in-kind donations. From binoculars to a pick-up truck, the items on our wish list will better prepare us for our education and restoration programs and help us to care for the animals in our interpretative center. Even if you are clearing your garage and need some place to take items such as office materials, crafts and hardware supplies, we would be happy to take those items off your hands and use them towards our education and restoration efforts.

For more information or questions about our wish list, please call us at (714) 846-1114.
