Thanks to a partnership grant from We Energies Foundation, James E. Dutton Foundation, Antonia Foundation, Ecolab and Natural Resources Foundation; Hoo's Woods now offers groups and organizations the opportunity to apply for a matching grant to host one of our Educational Programs. 

Applicants can choose among different programs available and must agree to match 50% of the program's fees. For example, a three-bird program may include a hawk, owl or falcon for $300. Qualified applicants chosen for a matching grant would pay only $150. We also offer programs that include a Golden Eagle. (Additional fee may apply for mileage)

 Programs not only feature live birds of prey, but teach audiences about their behaviors, habitats and simple ways to help with conservation efforts. Applicants must be a non-profit or not-for profit organization such as a school, club, library, or center, with the matching grant program specifically aimed at helping schools, student/children's groups, and seniors. This annual program is limited to funds available. Please check with us for date availability prior to submitting application. To apply, complete the application found here...
