Special Otter Pool 4 Special Kids!

Nurtured by Nature brings healing and laughter to children suffering from terminal illness or debilitating disease through its one-of-a-kind Otter Swim Encounter. Otter Swims give children and their families the opportunity to swim with Asian Small-Clawed Otters thanks to Nurtured by Nature's
knowledgeable staff and its unique heated-pool facility.

That pool started eight years ago as a temporary, above ground version of what we ultimately want to create... an in-ground, beach entrance, natural pondlike sanctuary!  This will enable us to :

1. Get children with mobilitiy issues into and out of the pool with much greater ease
2.  Have a large, shallow platform that will give these and the smaller children more room to safely sit in the water and play with the otters
3.  Provide a new glass perimeter which will give other guests and family members the opportunity to see the happiness and joy that only swimming with otters can bring!  

Nurtured by Nature has been creating joyful memories and growing significantly over the past several years and it's time to take the next step.  YOU can help us reach this goal! Please take a look at our website nurturedbynature.org and check us out on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/swimwithotters?ref=bookmarks  to see what we're all about!  

We know there are a lot of good causes out there, but hope that you will think that we're on to something GOOD and help us reach our goal.  Thank you so much for your support!
