The Calusa Nature Center & Planetarium shelters wounded animals and especially birds (bald eagles, hawks, owls, others) that can’t be released into the wild due to their injuries. Visitors of all ages can make an important connection to nature through coming close to these animals. Our aviary is in the process of being torn down and a new aviary constructed in early 2017. At the same time, our boardwalks through the swamp are in need of (and are in the process of) repair — as we can afford the materials and labor to do this. Your donations help us with much-needed infrastructure improvements and our educational mission: Thank you for all you do!
