Celebrating 26 Years

Of Saving Lives

May 1, 2018

Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge will celebrate our 26th anniversary Today on May 1. While there is no formal celebration planned, we are inviting the public to join us on our social media channels for a day of games, giveaways, reminiscing and fundraising. The Refuge will be open normal hours from 9 AM – 6 PM, which means the public is welcome to visit and provide an in-person salutation.

For supporters who would like to do something special to celebrate, we are asking for donations to raise $1,300 for their newly-formed education department. The creation of this department is a major milestone for the Refuge and something we feel will continue to be an asset for us, the general public, and the animals of the world for years to come. We maintain that education is one of the most important tools in combating the exotic pet trade and protecting animal rights.

The funds raised for the department will cover the cost of supplemental learning material, including replicas of animal skulls and claws, as well as supplies (glue sticks, paper, etc.) for our 2018 Summer Day Camps. For our supporters who are unsure of how much to give, we suggest $2.60, $12.60, $26, $126, $260, and so forth in honor of this special day.

 

The Refuge will also be remembering our history, sharing past photos and doing fun, online giveaways through their social media channels to show appreciation to their supporters. Join us for this fun-filled day and help us, help them!
