The success of Lakeside Nature Center depends upon generous support from individuals like you. Individual donations help rehabilitate over 3,500 injured and young animals each year.

Donations are used for food, medicine, and to update caging. Corporate donations can help create new exhibits and sponsor special events. In addition to monetary support, Lakeside Nature Center also accepts donations from our wish list.

Checks can be made to Friends of Lakeside Nature Center and dropped off or mailed to:
