“Our Project Plaza Fund Raising Event was achieved in December 2022”
Our goal was to raise $15,000 to help build this project. Project Plaza will include an expansion of the outdoor area west of the Visitor Center, providing a larger area for gatherings and program presentations. The plan is to finish building the Wall portion of the project Spring of 2023. At that time, we will roll out the Friends Forever Wall opportunities.
We are sincerely Thankful to the following donors as of Jan 2023:
Golden Eagle: The Dorthy and Brian Kern Family, The Hobbs Family
Red-Tailed Hawk: The Cooper Family
Prairie Falcon: Jim Voige-Cheyenne Propagation Company
