Welcome Welcome Welcome
We invite all of you to Join us June 1st 2-6PM at Just Goods, 201 South 7th Street, to meet Casper and Echo our 2 new Educational Barn Owls. To let everyone know they are endangered in almost all of the Midwest States due to farming practices.
Come and participate in welcoming them. We will have food and owl necklaces to purchase while they last.

Feeding the Raptors
First I would like to thank all who have started to give towards feeding the raptors. Join the ranks of being in the club. Also a huge thank you to Caledonia School who collected over $400 for this.
People that care always are such examples. If your school, group, church would like to help out, just start collecting change and see what happens.
Thank you again
I have signed up several individuals. We are looking for 100's more. I did not realize all the people that shop there and never utilize the card. You still get the discount off your gas but now you can be part of the solutions and help "Hoo" Haven.
Come on everyone each of us needs to work on getting 5 people and them 5. We can really do this.
In May we will be in the parking lot of Schuncks helping people sign up. Look for date and time but start now.
ALERT ALERT ALERT
To all our faithful Hoo followers. .. We have 4 pelicans 2 of which are to be going to Florida. However there seems to be a “glitch” and they are staying longer than expected.
We go thru about 16-20 pounds of fish a day. If anyone would like to ice fish, go to the store and purchase inexpensive fillets or want to give monies to help it would be gratefully appreciated. We all love them and they are interesting to watch but they have voracious appetites.
You can drop the fish off right at Hoo 10823 Cleveland Road Durand, IL 61024 (put it in your Garmin or Mapquest) and you can see them if someone is there or send a check.
Sugar Tail (the adult pelican) just finished her surgery and has woken up and is snapping. Cat Stevens (the 7 month old) is waiting for her to come back. Per the Vet's office she will be arriving Monday with antibiotics.
If you would like to help Sugar Tail and Cat Stevens make their flight to Busch in Florida please push donate and make a notation. Whether it is $5 or $50 every penny helps. The flight will be between $350-500. We are very glad we found a home for them as they require different things which make them sometimes difficult to place.
Thank you to everyone who helps.
