At Roan Mountain we house, care for and educate the public about a variety of native animals. We operate under a TWRA educational permit. We are currently looking after three birds of prey and several snakes! As you can imagine, these animals are costly to care for as their food and health care is a specialty!
All of our animals are non-releaseable for various reasons. We frequently program with these animals and never charge educational programs for using them. Here is your opportunity to support our wildlife education program and help us take care of these animals!
All donations are used to buy food, pay vet bills, buy gloves, tethers, falconry equipment, aquarium bedding and improve and build other housing options for our captive birds of prey.
To donate, click the green “Register for Event” button on the right. Your donation is a one-time payment. If you would like to cover more than one day, update the “amount” you would like to donate or simply return to this page in the coming months.
Thank you for supporting our Wildlife Ambassadors at Roan Mountain State Park!
