Center For Wildlife
Cape Neddick, ME
The Center for Wildlife is a private, non-profit organization whose mission is to build a sustainable future for wildlife in our community through medical treatment, rehabilitation, educational outreach, research, and conservation activities. To this end, they focus on three goals:
- Strengthening regional capacity to rescue, rehabilitate, and return injured animals to the wild
- Providing learning opportunities and expanding community outreach programs to teach and inspire people of all ages to help protect local wildlife
- Achieving long-term financial and ecological sustainability.
McHenry architecture has been working with the Center, since 2016, to develop a new campus and main building that meets all current and future needs. The interior program of the building includes a veterinary clinic, intern dormitory, auditorium, classrooms and nature discovery center. While the exterior includes an outdoor amphitheater, nature trails, and additional outdoor education spaces. This $4.5 million investment will help meet the increased demand for their services in both conservation medicine and environmental education.
