Holy cow! It actually looks like an official building—the siding is on! The original plan for the mews for our Draper Museum Raptor Experience didn’t include siding due to budget restrictions. Fortunately, Susan Ahalt, aka “the bird lady,” generously donated the money for the siding on our building. Susan is an amazing lady who not only volunteers in the Graphics Department here at the Center, but she also volunteers for the Golden Eagle Posse (the team that monitors golden eagle nests in the Big Horn Basin as part of a research project spearheaded by our Curator, Dr. Charles Preston), AND she is a full-time rehabber here in Cody, running the Ironside Bird Rescue. Check her out at http://ironsidebirdrescue.blogspot.com/.
Susan, we can’t thank you enough for your support and generosity!!!
