Team Building! Education! Inspiration!

The opportunities are endless

There are many ways that you or your business can get involved in Hawk Creek’s 501c3  nonprofit mission! Check out our wish list, donate food, or click below for more ways fuel the Center.

We do not receive state or federal funding and rely completely on the generosity of people like you, people who understand the importance of our wildlife, our community, and our planet. We gratefully receive funding through the Erie County Cultural Budget.

Become apart of the Hawk Creek family by symbolically adopting one of our permanent residents! Your adoption helps cover the cost of food, housing, enrichment and medicine for your adopted wild child and their friends!

One of the keys to running Hawk Creek Wildlife Center is the dedication of our volunteer staff. Our center relies on the time, talents, and of course, the elbow grease of our volunteers and interns.
