Hawk receives immediate medical attention

Special Thanks

The day before Thanksgiving brought a need for assistance at the Wildlife Hospital. Hospital staff suspected a bald eagle suffering from a concussion would thrive if placed in an outdoor recovery enclosure that had minimal light exposure. Hospital staff approached Curtis Rimes, Senior Superintendent for Gates Construction, responsible for the Dalton Discovery Center expansion at the Conservancy Nature Center, to see if they had extra privacy screen we could place on the outside recovery space. Curtis immediately offered his time and the screening for us to retrofit the enclosure. Meeting the needs of our patients often takes community support; hospital staff sincerely appreciate Gates Construction for their help with this project.
