About Hawk Creek Wildlife Inc.

Through over 2500 education programs and 500 animal patients each year, Hawk Creek reconnects humans to the natural world and inspires an appreciation of nature.

Hawk Creek is a volunteer driven organization that is funded by private donations and program fees. The center does not receive any state or federal funds.

Hawk Creek became the United States’ 41st accredited wildlife sanctuary. We are a non-profit group without public funding, primarily staffed by volunteers, yet we successfully rehabilitate hundreds of animals each year for release into the wild while offering permanent sanctuary to over seventy non-releasable animals. Eagles, wildcats, vultures, falcons, owls, endangered species, and many others are given the highest possible quality of life. A few of the permanently injured non-releasable animals become educational ambassadors, which both enriches the animals’ daily lives and teaches the community via our educational programs.

“I liked learning about how to take care of all of the different animals. There was always something new to learn and it was never boring. It was also interesting to see all that goes into a nonprofit wildlife center. ”
