After being closed for two years, due to COVID, we had a great re-opening this year! With your support, we'll be able to continue to serve the growing demand of people wanting to connect to nature. Trista and Ricardo
2022 Campaign Season
The Eagle House Campaign
Thanks to several donations, last winter we were able to complete the interior of Eagle House. We re-opened this spring, after being closed for two years, and hosted several retreat leaders as well as offered our own retreats and trainings.
Having Eagle House, with its big classroom space, and bathrooms and showers was a game changer!
This year, we're fundraising to complete the exterior siding, trim, deck and to fix the road going up to Eagle House. As you can see from the photos above, we were able to add siding around the entry way, but the rest remains unfinished.

Closing Our Budget Gap
This past summer's retreats were successful in replacing Hawk Circle's summer camp income. However, this year we are presented with another challenge. Our long-standing contract with the CROP agency where we offered after-school programs has come to an end. With the growing need for mental health services in schools, the agency's funds are being directed towards professional mental health services.
This leaves a $30,000 gap in our annual budget.
We are hoping to encourage early enrollment for our programs, but expect our efforts will only cover half the deficit. So for the first time in 32 years, we are asking for support in closing our budget gap.
