Spring Update: Wildlife Center Progress and Outlook

Dear Wildlife Center Supporters,

As we move into the summer of 2024, we would like to give you an update on our progress and upcoming events after a busy year and start to 2024. This past year has seen a significant increase in visitors, including first-timers and return guests, totaling at 5,230 visitors.

Our free school tours program has expanded to include home school groups and summer camps. This along with 4 more schools visiting for the first time will increase our students by 800 from last year.

We also had a successful showing at the Safari Club International Annual Convention in Nashville and Dallas Safari Club Convention, which helped fund our programs through art sales.

Looking forward, we have a series of summer programs lined up, such as our private tours, Veterans’ Retreat, SCI Leadership Training, and 6 Michigan Hunter Education field days.

Overview of our achievements since last newsletter:

  • Welcomed groups from 42 schools to The Wildlife Center.
  • A forecast of over 3,500 students participating in our Passport Tour.
  • Received 2 Family Taxidermy Collection Donations.
  • Hosted 5 Wild Game Dinners and 7 Private dinners from January to May.
  • Participated in two conventions, including the Dallas Safari Club and SCI Convention in Nashville.
  • Sold over 350 pieces of art.
  • 6 Hunter Education Field Days are on the schedule for 2024.
  • 77 individuals harvested their first white tail with us, 64 of whom were under the age of 17.

We are proud of our start to 2024 and excited about the activities we have planned for the rest of the year. Please ask us about getting involved! Best regards, Robert Sergi, Ranch Director & The Wildlife Center Team
