Other ways to donate

Summer Camp Wish List
Our summer day-camp runs for nine weeks and serves children ages 6-12. Our goal is to help form and foster strong connections to the natural world through experiential learning, arts & crafts, and games. We gladly accept in-kind donations for our collection of animal skulls, pelts, and rocks and minerals as well as arts/craft supplies, and like-new games. Additionally, we have created an Amazon Wish List where your purchase can be shipped directly to Great Hollow.
Animal Ambassadors 
Great Hollow is home to several non-releasable animal ambassadors. There are several ways in which you can help us care for these animals including symbolically adopting a bird of prey, making an animal ambassador specific donation, or by purchasing an item off of our Amazon Wish List.
