Oct. 12, 2012. The Grandfather Mountain Stewardship Foundation is proud to welcome three new creatures to the Adopt an Animal campaign: Shakespeare the Barred Owl and two Screech Owls named Herbie and Zoey. A new donation level is also available that makes a perfect gift for any animal lover.
The new $45 donation level includes a certificate of adoption, an 8×10 photograph and description of the animal, a plush animal and an e-newsletter subscription. Adoptions of $45 and above are now packaged in a unique animal carrier box. A total of $32 of the $45 Adopt and Animal level is tax deductable.
The three educational owls have been at the mountain for a while and guests may remember them from an Owl Encounter program during a past visit. They’ve now joined the habitat animals as the newest additions to the Adopt an Animal campaign: a means by which guests can make a real difference in the animals’ lives while acquiring some unique merchandise, not available outside of the Adopt and Animal campaign.
The Grandfather Mountain Stewardship Foundation’s adoption program began in December 2009 and provides habitat upgrades, enriching activities, toys and treats to make the animals’ day a little more special.
A sampling of the habitat animals is available for adoption at the $45 level at the Grandfather Mountain Nature Museum Gift Shop just in time for the holidays. To view all the animals available for adoption, in addition to the different adoption levels, please visit www.grandfather.com.
The Grandfather Mountain Stewardship Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation established to preserve Grandfather Mountain, operate the nature park sustainably in the public interest, provide an exceptional experience for guests, and inspire them to be good stewards of the earth’s resources.
