As the year draws to a close, I sit back and reflect on the wonderful people that have stepped up and helped out and the injured and orphaned wildlife that we were able to help. Thank you for your help in 2011 and I hope you all find it in your hearts to help us in the coming year. Merry Christmas from the Board of Directors and the two recovering wild animals still in care.

On behalf of the Saw-Whet Owls, the Barn Swallows, the Cedar Waxwing, the Swainson's Thrush, the Mourning Dove, and others...

I wish to thank the volunteers that made their care possible.


You are as priceless as the wild animals that inhabit the panhandle of Idaho.

Thank You to All Volunteers

A HUGE thank you to who have helped AHWF over the past 10 years. We began as a dream and have slowly grown. I think back to the all our progress...creation of the animal room and the subsequent expansions. The flight barn yard expansion and the recent flight yard enclosure, the Raccoon enclosure, the website, the social media links, all the public relation events, the summer camp, the 10 year lease of 1 acre, etc. All this was made possible through private donations and grant funders like Foley-Frischkorn Wildlife Trust (Key-Bank), International Osprey Foundation, Whittenberger Foundation, Community Trust (PSB). Now I am excited to announce the possibility of opening the Nature Center Building. We have been given the option to purchase the building at a very reasonable rate. Ask how you can make this a reality too!

Owls and Garage Sale

These little Saw-Whet Owls are such a delight! Their silent flight, nocturnal abilities and an effort to help us fund their nutritional needs (as well as other patients) we must have occasional fundraisers. Saturday May 28th at the Hope Memorial Community Center we will be having a 'garage sale'. Please stop by and find out more about our cause and perhaps you will find some things you must own! Thank you for the support.

Western Meadowlark

Our first patient of 2011 has arrived. A beautiful Western Meadowlark. The poor thing was so scared and shocky and the first 24 hours are the most critical. This morning our feathered friend was at its food bowl having some breakfast, so we are cautiously optimistic.
We are planning the release of our wintered over Merlin Hawk. She is finally fit enough for release. Keep your fingers crossed for wonderful weekend weather both this and next as the Highway cleanup is scheduled for the 30th.
