Helping a Dream Take Flight

One of the most unusual wildlife sanctuaries in northeast Ohio is poised to grow, thanks to a gift from the Cafaro Foundation. Birds in Flight Sanctuary has received a gift of $100,000 to help it establish a large, efficient facility to provide care for hundreds of animals and to create an education center for local school children and adults.  Birds in Flight currently cares for more than 1,000 birds and other wild animals in a crowded rental home on a one-acre lot in a residential section of Howland Township.  While a larger location in Howland would be a preferred option, the organization is considering other potential sites in Trumbull County.
