Green Friday / Christmas Tree Fundraiser

Escape the “Black Friday” stress with a family day out during “Green Friday,” happening November 27th! Find your perfect family Christmas tree, go zip lining (additional fee)**, get up close and personal with wildlife, and hike our trails! Warm up with a tasty cup of hot cocoa. After all, we believe the reason for the season is time spent with loved ones.

This is the start of our annual Christmas Tree Fundraiser, where our courtyard transforms into a festive Christmas Tree lot FULL of gorgeous trees! We will have fresh cut trees ranging from 6ft – 12ft tall. We will also have fresh fir wreaths and garland. The funds raised from all purchases will go toward caring for our wildlife ambassadors all winter long.

Admission into the Wildlife Park and NatureScape is $6 per adult and $4 per child, with infants 2 and under free. Zip lining is an additional $20 per person. You do not need to pay admission to explore our Tree Lot.

Enjoy your second chance at life coyote friend!

For those of you who followed the story of the coyote who came to us after being trapped in a window well, we have wonderful news! She was released last week! We are SO thankful for the outpouring of support our community gave this special patient (yes, we know we call them all special, but they are!). Not only are we grateful that we were able to help her, but we are grateful that people saw the value in this often-villified animal. Coyotes play an important role in the ecosytem, and there are so many ways we can live in harmony with them. If you have questions about how to successfully do that, let us know!

Please don't forget to vote for us in the Detroit News Cheer for Charity contest to give us a shot at winning $20,000 to support our efforts in helping Michigan wildlife! detroitnews.secondstreetapp.com/2020-Holiday-Cheer-for-Charity/gallery

Opossums are full of neat adaptations! One of them is their prehensile tail, which they use as a fifth appendage. Check out our non-releasable opossum Dash using his tail to collect straw for his bed. Because he had to undergo a partial tail amputation, this task is a little harder for him, but don’t worry, we made him a nice & cozy bed!

This stunning juvenile bald eagle was brought to our Clinic yesterday by a DNR conservation officer. She was dehydrated, thin, and has injuries to both wings. She was given fluids and medication, and she will soon get X-rays so we can have a better understanding of what her wing injuries are. We are hopeful she will be able to recover for release back into the wild, but it will be a long process to get her back into good body condition with proper nutrition, for her injuries to heal, and for her to regain the strength and stamina needed to survive in the wild as a top predator. We are dedicated to doing everything we can to help give her a second chance at life. If you can, please consider helping her too with a donation! Our clinic is funded through our revenue, donations, and grants, so every little bit helps! We appreciate it!

Don't forget to vote for us once a day during Detroit News Holiday Cheer for Charity so that we can win $20,000 to help wildlife in need, like this eagle: detroitnews.com/cheer2020
