Help Build Habitats for our BOP

We need your help!

The Friends of Cumberland Mountain are raising funds to build the second phase of our aviary. Funds will be used to purchase materials to build two much needed flight cages for the parks non-releasable birds of prey. Signage for each flight cage will be displayed to inform park visitors the type of bird they are viewing along with other information about the bird. The additional cages will also allow our two birds that are fully-flighted to have an area large enough to exercise and play.

The goal is to raise enough money to build two cages fully equipped with electricity and water. We hope to achieve our goal of $8,000 as soon as possible so we can begin construction late spring 2019.

Please join in our efforts to make the additions needed for our feathery friends! Make checks payable to: Friends of Cumberland Mountain State Park
