Check out our Spring Newsletter! There’s lots of information about exciting updates and our 2023 events!
We are excited to make 2023 another GREAT season!
We are so excited for the season to start up and to show our visitors what’s new! Opening day will be Saturday, May 6th and we can’t wait for you to see what we have in store this season. Come see the beautiful new mural by Janet Stearns! We will also be unveiling our new interactive digital displays for our taxidermy collection, a fun and educational experience providing in-depth information about all of the species we have on display. This project has been possible due to grant funds from Shores & Islands Ohio, (a matching grant) we are still raising funds to support this exciting project. Make sure to start planning your trip to see all the exciting new things at the Nature & Wildlife Center next year!
As always, we strive to be an educational resource for our community near and far. We have developed some resources to help families with fun activities to do while at home as well as educational resources for kids (and adults!), and are working on more. If there are any other ways we can be a helpful resource to the community, please contact us and let us know. If you want to volunteer to help the Nature & Wildlife Center, please reach out as we are always looking for help within the community. We sincerely appreciate any and all support you can provide, whether it’s donations, volunteering, or even just liking and sharing our social media pages and posts! Thank you to our amazing community, we appreciate all of you more than we can say!
We work hard to keep our expenses to a minimum, but as always, we rely on donations to help support our educational programs and operating costs. We are also still seeking donations to help with the new displays. You can help by sponsoring a display (contact us at email@example.com for more details), purchasing an item for the Nature & Wildlife Center off our Amazon Wish List (don’t forget to shop through AmazonSmile and make the LEINWC your charity to give back with every purchase!), or sponsoring a yearly expense.
