The Medicine River Wildlife Centre is about to break ground and start construction on a one-of-a-kind education centre, green showplace and a state-of-the-art wildlife hospital.
The upgrade will rely on a wide range of help and donations of expertise, materials, labour and cash.
The goal is to complete the upgraded facility by the centre’s 30th anniversary in 2014.
The improvements are anticipated to cost $300 per square foot, and each supporter who donates that single square foot will have a tree planted in their name on the centre’s property. Major donors, those contributing more than $10,000 or more, will have their tree with an engraved rock planted on the public nature trail.
Because of the extensive upgrades and repairs needed for the building and the construction planned for this summer, the interpretive centre will not be open to the public.
