The Challenge

Norman Bird Sanctuary's stunning 325 acres require ongoing maintenance and care, as well as occasional special investments: equipment, building maintenance, trail upgrades, habitat restoration, storm protection and recovery.

The Paradise Protection Fund will provide stable, predictable funding to protect this special property in perpetuity.

Your Opportunity

Now, you can assure the long-term protection of Mabel Norman’s legacy. Your gift to the Protecting Paradise Capital Campaign will create a sustainable source of funding for the care and protection of this magnificent property.

A permanent $6 million+ fund will provide annual funding for the long-term protection of habitats, trails, and buildings; addressing the property’s unique needs, from trail enhancements, to infrastructure repairs, to storm resilience.
