Are you looking for a gift for the person who has everything?

When you participate in the Adopt-an-Animal program at Brukner Nature Center, your donation helps to pay for the food and husbandry that our resident wildlife need to survive, from individualized diets to specialized cage improvements and daily enrichments.

We have adoption levels ranging from $25 - $200 based on the animal you choose to adopt!

Adopt-a-Release Box

Our wildlife rehab patients need your help!

Your support of our "Adopt-a-Release Box" program will help us to continue to provide hundreds of wildlife rehab patients with the support they need as they return to the wild.  Animals such as Virginia opossums and eastern gray squirrels are provided a release box to help stimulate a natural environment that provides shelter from predators and weather, as well as, a place to rest.

All release box donations are $20.


Click here for our Adopt-an-Animal brochure.

All adoptions will receive a certificate featuring a photo of your adopted Wildlife Ambassador or our Release Box Ambassador.  A certificate will be ready for pick-up or mailed to recipient in 3 - 5 days.

Please note: if purchasing an adoption for Christmas, we will need adoption forms by December 19.
