Outbuilding donated by Joseph and Mary Mersereau used to care for rehab birds.

Because of a very generous donation from Joseph and Mary Mersereau, we were able to build this outbuilding, which we use for the care of rehab birds before they are ready for outdoor flight cages. The donation was made in the memory of Joseph's brother, Gerald Mersereau, who banded over 8,500 raptors as a volunteer for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

We appreciate the efforts made by Paulien Rorick of Studio P Graphic Design in volunteering her time to redesign our website.

Volunteering

Horizon Wings also values dedicated people willing to volunteer their time helping out at the center. Volunteers help with cleaning cages, feeding and watering birds, and helping to build new cages and maintain existing ones. Maintaining the grounds is also a never-ending task.

Very dedicated volunteers will also have the opportunity to help on educational programs and participate in the care and eventual release of rehab birds.

High school and college students looking for credits or experience in the wildlife field are always welcome.

We do our best to make volunteering at Horizon Wings a fun and educational experience. We especially need volunteer help in the Spring, Summer and Fall.

Please fee free to contact Horizon Wings to schedule an appointment.
