For all these reasons, we think that Sammy still has people to inspire. All of the funds will go towards his surgery which is scheduled on Monday, 1/22/18. I am the Assistant Director and am working directly with the center to cover all costs. If we go over the amount, the funds will go towards taking care of our other non-releasable birds: Sammy, Scooter (Eastern Screech Owls); Sherlock (Barred Owl), Oden (Great Horned Owl); Hopper (Broad-winged Hawk); and Conrad (Blue Jay). Pictured below is Sammy (Grey) on the left and Scooter (Red) on the right.
The mission of the John James Audubon Center at Mill Grove is to educate and inspire people to cherish and protect the natural world, by preserving Audubon’s artistic, scientific, and historic legacy and celebrating the conservation movement he inspired while serving the mission of the National Audubon Society (NAS), “to conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds, other wildlife, and their habitats for the benefit of humanity and the earth’s biological diversity.”
