A wish list for the birds
In addition to monetary donations, Sylvan Heights gratefully accepts items that assist us in the care of our birds and their habitats. Donations are tax-deductible.
Sylvan Heights Bird Park will not share or sell a donor’s personal information with anyone else, nor send donor mailings on behalf of other organizations. The Park recognizes certain levels of donations in its newsletter, on a donor board, and on sponsorship signs. Any contributor can request to remain anonymous with regard to such recognition. The North Carolina Zoological Society assists Sylvan Heights Bird Park by processing the Park’s membership applications and certain donations. The Zoological Society treats the Park’s information with the same confidentiality as the Park does.
As a non-profit organization, Sylvan Heights Waterfowl Park & Eco-Center, Inc.
