Birds of prey, such as eagles, falcons, hawks, owls, and vultures, have a vital role in our ecosystem. Fontenelle Forest’s Raptor Team is focused on the conservation of raptors through statewide education, both on and off-site, including in our Raptor Woodland Refuge located at the Fontenelle Forest Nature Center. By sponsoring one of our birds of prey, your support will help us fulfill our mission of educating people about the importance of raptor conservation through educational programs for children, adults, and seniors. Your support is also vital in helping Fontenelle Forest to offset the year-round costs of feeding and caring for all of our educational raptors.

Each sponsorship comes with an 8×10 photo of the species you are sponsoring, a fact card about that species, and a certificate of sponsorship.

Here are the sponsorships available:

  • Osprey Sponsorship: $100  Sold out, check back soon!
  • Turkey Vulture Sponsorship: $100 Sold out, check back soon!
  • Great Horned Owl Sponsorship: $100 Sold out, check back soon!

Drop by our gift shop and pick up some more unique gifts to go with your sponsorship. Perhaps a book on birding, a t-shirt, or a stuffed animal of a favorite bird!
