Lead Naturalist John Pollpeter says “We hope all of our friends and regular visitors to the Woodlands Nature Station will take this opportunity to support this project with a financial donation. The existing enclosure was built in 1995. A new habitat will offer the bobcat a more natural and enriching space. The plan is to include more environmental features such as tall grass, boulders, rock shelves and hollow logs, which will lead to more exercise and shelter for our bobcat friend.”

This is a tremendous opportunity for our supporters to help us fulfill our mission of environmental education.”
