Support Birds of Prey at KNC

GoFundMe Kalamazoo Nature CenterDonate to the GoFundMe Campaign to build KNC’s Birds of Prey new housing. Tukey, KNC’s beloved turkey vulture, and his feathered friends need a new place to stay. Their homes at the Kalamazoo Nature Center were damaged by ice storms that wreaked havoc this spring in Southern Michigan and are currently in temporary housing until new ones can be built.
